It's situated along the waterfront and retains a strong European ambiance thanks to the area's early settlers, many of whom came from the Italian city of Genoa.

Then continue to San Telmo, where the weekly San Telmo Antique Fair hosts more than 250 vendors. Mingle with residents who are out to shop and to enjoy the impromptu performances of dance and theater that make this one of the capital's liveliest events. San Telmo has also emerged as a gastronomic hub making this a terrific place for lunch. Today, you'll also visit Zanjon de Granados.
