Great street art saved this neighborhood, which was a dismal abandoned railyard and landfill – a real eyesore. In the 60’s, artists were brought in to paint the corrogated metal buildings in bright pastel colors. Life sized charicatures of figures real and imagined line the streets and pop from balconies and the top of buildings. Restaurants, shops and musicians followed, and now it is one of the top tourist destinations in Buenos Aires. Very charming!
