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.

Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Casa Minima, Pasaje San Lorenzo, 380, Buenos Aires 1065 Argentina
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".

Pass By: Calle Defensa Bairro San Telmo, Buenos Aires Argentina
The Pizzeria Pirilo is located in San Telmo. It´s open since 1932 and is part of the historical, cultural and gastronomic heritage of Buenos Aires.
Stop At: Mercado de San Telmo, Defensa 963, Buenos Aires Argentina
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.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Plaza Dorrego, Buenos Aires Argentina
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.
