La Boca is a paradox, one of the poorest barrios in the city, but with a thriving tourism scene and home to one of the biggest football clubs on the continent. Through huge visually impacting murals, and pieces that make biting social commentary we'll discover the true identity of a working class neighborhood in the throngs of gentrification, that is fighting back by spilling paint on the walls. The street art of La Boca creates a poignant narrative about left wing politics, gentrification, football hooliganism, and feminism in Argentina and Latin America.

Learn about:
-The history of Argentine street art.
-The reflection of Argentine idiosyncrasy and history on La Boca’s walls.
-Street art and its relationship with popular-class culture.
The tour finishes in Caminito, one of the most iconic areas of Buenos Aires. Feel free to explore on your own or add a short private tour of the area with us!
