The neighbourhood was once the tango centre and all-Italian centre of the city near the Rio de la Plata. It is very colourful and has great photo opportunities. By all means, drop into La Perla Bar-Cafe for a "cortado"(espresso with a bit of steamed milk), the oldest in the city. This is the soul of the city and a reminder of its culture and immigrant roots. During the day it is quite safe to go alone on the #50 bus from Callao.
