  San Telmo´s Feria
by Constanza

San Telmo -at some time the center of the city- proves that Buenos Aires has existed for more than four centuries.

You can infer that because of the different old buildings protected as historical heritage.

Here you can find most of the tanguer?as.
In Plaza Dorrego and surroundings you can feel that tango atmosphere reproduced by the bandone?n rhythm.

Artisans and antique stands gather here, and tango dancers usually perform their shows in the open air.

Since San Telmo has been declared historical area it has developed from the point of view of buildings and stores. Many last century old houses have been recycled into stores and picturesque restaurants.
