The Palermo Viejo Neighborhood of Buenos Aires

No reviews, be the first!

Buenos Aires’ largest barrio, or neighborhood, is called Palermo, and visitors to the city will almost certainly be spending plenty of time here. Palermo has several sections, each with its own distinct flavor: Palermo Chico, the city’s most exclusive address, Palermo Alto, known for its upscale shopping, Palermo Las Canitas, a shady, relaxed neighborhood with good restaurants and schools, Palermo Botanico, close to Buenos Aires’ amazing botanical garden and many more.

Palermo Viejo, or “Old Palermo,” refers to about half of Palermo, distinctive for its small, cheerfully painted Italian- and Spanish-style houses (quite different from the high-rise apartment buildings elsewhere in the city), bohemian vibe, trendy restaurants, bars, shops and galleries.
