This is billed as the smallest house in Buenos Aires and is interesting to see but I would only make a side trip down Pasaje San Lorenzo to see it if you're already walking down Calle Defensa as it's not worth a special trip.
Nice place to visit, but do take the tour, we had a dinner there, food was ok but nothing special, service was very good. Our tour guide made the story of this place very interesting.
Thank Cindy N
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
