San Telmo Antiques Fair
San Telmo is the oldest neighborhood in BsAs. It used to be where all the rich families lived, until they were driven away by the yellow fever epidemic in the 1800s. Its cobblestone streets lead to cafes, tango parlors, antique shops, parilla restaurants and preserved colonial homes.
On Sundays, droves of tourists head to this historic downtown barrio for the antiques fair, stretched across 13 blocks along Defensa Street. Apart from antiques and the usual “I ♥ Argentina” merchandise, you will find cowhide in all its incarnations, art, fur and cashmere clothing, empanada and churros vendors, musicians, live mannequins and tango dancers.
This was one of things I looked forward to the most, before coming to Argentina.
