Like an open-air museum, its charm lies in its colours and asymmetrical shapes.
Famous 100 metres.
Once an old fishing town, Buenos Aires has preserved its La Boca neighbourhood, despite becoming the megalopolis it is today. Inside La Boca, the Caminito is a street just 100 metres long, which ends at one of the city’s river basins. This open-air museum, close to the Bombonera football stadium, is lined with inconsistent houses of asymmetrical height, with façades painted in different, eye-catching colours. Locals say that fishermen would use the paint left over from their boats to paint their houses, which is why the Caminito is so remarkable. Take a stroll around the outskirts and you may very well bump into artisans, painters and tango dancers, who make the most of the large daily influx of tourists in this area.
