  • Attraction for enjoyment or metal architecture of the nineteenth century or of transport engineering, we loved it even though the area is not the best for tourists.

  • One of the postcards of the neighborhood of La Boca. Until some time ago it was a well-traveled path, today lost place to the Buenos Aires - La Plata Highway

  • Imposing bridge metal, part of the history of the Creek and of Buenos Aires around. Unforgettable photo of all visitors of the area of the mouth.
