Create an itinerary including Caminito
See street art come to life at Caminito, a traditional alley that doubles as an open-air museum. Created by local artist Benito Quinquela Martin in the 1950s, the art project breathed life into a run-down part of town, transforming it into one of the city's most iconic spots. Appreciate the brightly colored houses and intricate paintings, which line the alleyway like a patchwork quilt. Tango lovers can share a passionate dance in the alley--this is where the famous Caminito tango was born.
