Nuestra próxima caminata por San Telmo, en inglés. Sábado 9 de septiembre a las 15.30hs.

WHEN?: Saturday 9th September at 3.30pm. British punctuality is a must

WHERE?: we will meet 3.30pm at the monument of the First Foundation of Buenos Aires at Parque Lezama and then walk down Defensa St, where wealthy porteño families settled before the plague and the late 19th century economic boom.

On this walk we will visit Ezeiza home, which as many of the houses abandoned after the plague, was filled with working class immigrants, one family per room (one of the largest tenement houses -conventillos- at the time). At a time it housed 33 families.

Plaza Dorrego,San Pedro Gonzalez Telmo church, home of Esteban de Luca, San Telmo Public Market, Sec. of Agriculture, School of Engineering, Hymn/ Ode to Labour Monument, El Viejo Almacén, Casa Mínima, ( the narrowest house, given by his former owner to a freed slave) are some of the highlights on this tour.

COST: $250 per person.

A chill out drink after our walk is always a good option for those who can stay on. We will pick out the most convenient bar after the tour. We need your confirmation asap for a better organisation.
