San Telmo, Buenos Aires: 9 reviews and 11 photos

Favorite thing: It's not a bad idea to begin your visit to San Telmo by starting in the Monserrat neighborhood. You can see some old churches and historical buildings, such as the Manzana de las Luces. And then walk all of the way up Defensa, slowly making your way through the San Telmo neighborhood. Try to go on a Sunday when the street market (La Feria De Plaza Dorrego) is in full swing. You'll find plenty of street performers (such as Carlito below) as well as antiques and collectables of all sorts. In the evening, one of the best steak houses in all of Buenos Aires is serving a Bife de Lomo for prices that will make you cry tears of happiness...really!! El Des Nivel is located Defensa 885, but be prepared for a line!
