Our suggestion: Palermo Viejo (Old Palermo) the oldest part reflects an older Spanish Colonial Revival style in architecture, often “recycled” with modern elements. Palermo Soho–is a small area of Palermo Viejo around Plaza Serrano–Plazoleta Cortázar)

It is a newly fashionable area for fashion, design, restaurants, bars and street culture. The atmosphere in many cafés and restaurants strives to be “alternative”, which makes this area of the city especially popular with young, upper-middle class Argentines as well as foreign tourists.

The traditional low houses have been adapted into boutiques and bars, creating a Bohemian feel. The square has a crafts fair, Japanese Garden, and the Malba – the Museum of Latin American Art, is located next door between Barrio Parque and the Evita Peron Museum.
