Palermo, Buenos Aires

4.6
#4 of 379 in Shopping in Argentina
It may not be the geographical center of the city, but the vibrant neighborhood of Palermo serves as the social hub of Buenos Aires. The district, one of the largest by area in the city, thrives with cafes, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, making it the ideal spot to meet friends for a night out on the town. It's worth a visit by day, too--the neighborhood houses the extensive Bosques de Palermo, a huge public park containing Buenos Aires' zoo and botanical gardens, as well as the city's rose and Japanese gardens. Rich with diversity, the neighborhood ranges from upscale on its northeastern side to alternative in the southwest.

  • What can I say about my neighborhood?! One of the prettiest of Buenos Aires, has everything that you seek. Gardens to enjoy the outdoors, exercising and riding bike, houses ancient and modern to see Buenos Aires architecture, bars for all kinds of people, theatres, traditional and alternative fashion business. One of the biggest and complete city neighborhoods. To visit: the beautiful botanical garden, the rose garden, strolling by the Plaza Cortazar, in short, much to see and explore.

  • A very nice neighborhood, agitated with many tourists, pretty shops, many restaurants, cafés and close to Puerto Madero, has square with handicraft. Very good for walking because the streets are well-wooded, has lots of music and night life pretty busy!
