Enjoy a private artisans and makers tour where you will discover what our artists and artisans have been doing for the last 200 years. The fileteado is a very "argentinian" type of art. From the paintings on signs or cristals to our own "colectivos" (buses) were decored with this type of art. 
On the other hand, our Silversmith will be able to show you why the Pope has an argentinian made Chalice amongst others.
We suggest visits to La Boca and San Telmo, while you will be driving through Recoleta, Retiro and Puerto Madero.

La casa del dulce de leche - CENTRO
The house of Dulce de Leche is the first Buenos Aires store dedicated exclusively to dulce de leche and its products (alfajores, sandwiches, candies and liqueurs). They are made by small producers from all over the country and marketed in the three locations of the brand, which are located in the neighborhoods of Palermo, San Telmo and Microcentro.

Casa Minima
With just 2.50 meters in front, this house, which was part of a house from the second decade of the nineteenth century, is known as the narrowest in the city. It has a simple façade, composed of a two-leaf door with green painted panels and, on the upper floor, a small balcony with iron bars. These houses were for freed slaves, whose masters assigned them a small space to build their homes, adjacent to their property. The San Lorenzo Passage house - the only one of its kind in Buenos Aires - measures 2.50 meters wide and 13 meters deep. The construction is from the second decade of the nineteenth century and it is a residual space that remained after the successive building reforms that the block suffered.

The minimum house is also known for the myth that hovered around it. It was believed that there had resided a freed slave, to whom his master had given him the land to build his home. Hence, for a long time it was called among the porteños "Casa del esclavo liberto".

Mercado de San Telmo
Visiting the market is to venture to a walk that recalls the Old Buenos Aires. Doing the purchases of the day, looking for a seasoning that is not easy to find elsewhere, or just letting yourself go among the antiques, handicrafts, records or old toys stands, is an eclectic experience. It takes the best of each item to make it a new and unique combination. This grouping of dissimilar proposals are the great attraction of the market.

Plaza Dorrego
Plaza Dorrego, where the San Telmo Fair operates every Sunday, is one of the most popular walks for Buenos Aires residents and tourists. There are numerous antique stalls that give it an air of sophisticated flea market. Located in the neighborhood of San Telmo, many of the nineteenth century mansions that are around have been recycled and transformed into cafes, antique shops or top restaurants. The bars in the area put tables on the street and is one of the places with more street artists in the city.

La Pulpería Quilapán is a unique place in Buenos Aires. Passing through the iron gate you enter a delirious world, a bit of countryside in the city, where the creativity and energy of its owners Grégoire and Tatiana can be appreciated in every corner. With will and much effort they managed to restore a historic house in San Telmo to transform it into what is now a space that mixes Argentine folklore, Buenos Aires architecture and modernity.

Here ends the visit with a coffee with homemade bread, jam and sweet milk.
