caminito {La Boca, Buenos Aires}






La Boca is one of Buenos Aires' most colorful districts. Italian immigrants were the first settlers of La Boca, and the working class neighborhood was Buenos Aires' first port. Today the buildings in the barrio are painted in bright colors. El Caminito, was named for a popular tango song.

  1. Lovely. If you are going to have a tin house, that's the way to color it...bright & beautiful.

  2. Yes, I agree. I have often seen pictures of this district and thought that it is cool that they brighten up what could be otherwise depressing.
