  Pasaje de Defensa
by Sonador3

I really loved this place. Though some may consider it contrived and touristy, I liked the kitschy-ness of the whole thing. Lots of old shops and a cafe or two. Prior to 1981 there were 31 houses here, then it was turned into a shopping promenade. Back in the day (1881) the building belonged to the Ezeiza family (think Airport), and if ever there was a photo that screamed for a sepia setting, it's this one.

Open Tuesday through Sunday from10am to 8pm.
