With its brightly painted houses and funky atmosphere, Caminito is one of the most famous streets in Buenos Aires.
It may not be a grand boulevard, but Caminito is a historic walkway that grabs your attention from the moment you enter.
Founded by Italian immigrants from Genoa, the street is lined with haphazardly built homes constructed from corrugated metal and wood, painted in a plethora of gaudy colors.
You’ll probably hear the dramatic foot-stomping strains of the tango as you stroll down this pedestrian walkway, and as you look around you’ll see works by local artists on the walls of this outdoor living gallery.
Caminito is in the colorful enclave of La Boca, south of downtown Buenos Aires.
The best way to visit is by tour or taxi.
