Buenos Aires Street Art

Sandro, our girl Petra, and I meant to do the Buenos Aires Street Art Tour, but sometimes in this city, things don't happen when they say they do! So lucky for us, we self-guided the tour and wound up having a really chilled out adventure!
We started at Av. Federico Lacroze and Cramer, right by the Colegiales train station. We used this excellent online street art map as a guide. We spent all afternoon roaming through this quiet and lovely neighborhood getting up close with some of these famous pieces. Here are some of my favorites:

For a massive dose of top notch street painting without the long walk, get yourself to El Mercado de Las Pulgas at Dorrego y Av. Alvarez Thomas. This enormous warehouse is an antique furniture flea market and it's outside walls are covered in murals!


  1. Awesome! I also like exploring Villa Crespo and lower Palermo Soho for some awesome murals. Vamos?

  2. Great! Thanks for the response!
