Tour description

A magnet for visitors to Buenos Aires, La Boca captivates with its unique atmosphere and rich history. This emblematic neighborhood, with port roots and picturesque alleys, is the birthplace of tango and the home of the passionate soccer teams Boca Juniors and River Plate. Its social fabric, shaped by Genoese immigration, stands out among the opulence of the central neighborhoods of the city.

In the heart of La Boca is Caminito, a vibrant passageway on the banks of the Riachuelo, turned into a living canvas by renowned artist Quinquela Martín. This dazzlingly colored alley is both a local and international icon, ranking among the most photographed destinations in the world according to Google Maps.

Exploring La Boca is immersing yourself in a journey full of emotions and discoveries. From the imposing Benito Quinquela Martín Museum to the most picturesque corners such as Vuelta de Rocha and the PROA Foundation, each step reveals a new facet of this fascinating neighborhood. The iconic Bombonera stadium and the heroic volunteer fire station are just some of the highlights waiting to be explored on this journey full of history and color.
