What people say

"La Casa Minima is said to have been gifted to a previously enslaved person once they were freed in 1820. This is also the thinnest building in the city. Tours in English occur every day at 1pm, and last 40 minutes. You can buy your ticket at El Zanjon, just around the corner. I have heard this tour isn't that great, and lasts too long. "
"Famous for being the narrowest house in the city, a landmark you can similarly find in other places around the world. There’s truthfully not any ‘must-do’ activity here, however if you find yourself in San Telmo it’s a quick place to stop by for a photo op and history lesson."
"This is one of the stops for the San Telmo walking tour. It's a very narrow historical house. You can also take a tour inside of it."

Mentioned in these guides

I have been living in Argentina for the past year (plus 5 months in Buenos Aires back in 2005). This is one of my favorite cities in the entire world, and I want to share with you what makes it so great. This 10 day itinerary begins on a Friday morning, and is arranged according to market schedules, or other events in the city that fall on particular days. But you can certainly do the activities out of order, and fit them to your schedule as needed. I have planned this 10-day itinerary to allow you to maximize your days, and hours in this amazing city, but still allow you to enjoy the small moments without feeling overwhelmed, and get rest when needed. I have spent around 100 hours researching, writing descriptions to give detailed information of every place mentioned in this itinerary, visiting and testing out each day; they are all genuine recommendations. I have carefully planned out and timed each activity, including transportation and time moving between sites. I have also linked related articles and videos from my blog and YouTube channel. This itinerary will provide you not only with daily activities, but information on how to get the best exchange rate, how to stay safe, and information for transportation- how to get from spot to spot, so you can put as little time into planning as possible. Let me do that for you! :) This is not the ideal itinerary for those seeking the nightlife and parties. It is full of morning, daytime, and evening activities (with a few optional activities that go into the night) to help you get to know the culture of Buenos Aires and Argentina. It does not include nightclubs. This is a great itinerary if you are coming to Buenos Aires for the first time and you want to see all the important places, along with a few extra gems. This can also serve if you live in the city but have friends and family coming to visit. I've got it all planned out for you! I have included a lot of walking in this itinerary, though I have attempted to concentrate each day in one particular area of the city whenever possible. However, the city is full of transportation options if you prefer less steps due to accessability issues, or fatigue. I strongly suggest reading through the entire itinerary at the beginning of the week in case there are places where you need to make a reservation. If so, it will be listed at the top of each day.

A collection of popular and lesser-known places in Buenos Aires to explore, eat, drink, photograph, co-work, find community, and so much more! 🇦🇷 Nearly all of these I have been to myself, the remaining others I have been recommended repeatedly, but haven’t yet had the chance to visit. Even so, I've included everything here so you won't miss out! Inside, you’ll find 150+ unique recommendations sorted and subcategorized among the following sections: Sightseeing, Museums & Art Galleries, Outdoor Spaces, Day Trips, Cafés & Bakeries, Restaurants & Food, Nightlife, LGBTQ+, Shopping, Street Photography, and Bonus (rotating events & more!) As a bilingual, queer, and solo female traveler having spent 6+ months in Buenos Aires, this list is my treasured resource to daily life and tourism in the city with an emphasis on cultural immersion. I’ve included a wide array of free activities, affordable options, and a few handpicked higher-end experiences for passerby travelers and nomads alike. Buenos Aires is massive and has lots to offer, but is also home to hidden beauty and unique gems waiting to be discovered. I recommend you explore at your own pace, strolling the beautiful neighborhoods and leaving room for serendipity while sorting through the places in this guide that resonate with you the most!
