Barrio Palermo

December 25, 2010

There are over 40 neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. I live in Palermo, the biggest barrio and one of the most exclusive barrios, together with Recoleta (probably the most prime barrio of all), Belgrano and Puerto Maderno (most modern area of BA, skyscrapers and all).

Palermo is considered as the lungs of Buenos Aires, what with the number of green open spaces, recreational parks and arching trees that line its streets. This barrio is further divided into Alto Palermo (downtown Palermo, shopping strip), Palermo Hollywood (the trendiest barrio in the city), Palermo Soho (home to the hippest bars, restos and shops), Palermo Chico (the most upmarket area in Palermo) ,Palermo Viejo (old Palermo) and Las Cañitas (I don’t know, i haven’t been there).
