Get lost in the Sunday bazaar of San Telmo

One of the things I like in Buenos Aires is that here people always find the time, the reason and the place to open a bazaar, or as it is called in Argentina, a "feria". Everything is closed on Sunday? No problem at all, let's get down to the bazaar and let's get lost amongst all the traditional handicrafts and antiquities. But the most famous - and turistic -  from all bazaars is the traditional Sunday bazaar of San Telmo, in the historical center of Buenos Aires. The bazaar is throughout the whole length of the Defensa street up to Dorrego Square.

I will write about San Telmo in a later post, but until then a photo essay teaser about the bazaar and its feeling.

Let's start the bazaar!
Just a usual Sunday on the Defense Street
There is everything! Posters, ...
... tin tango dancers, ...
... mate tea pots, ...
... antiquities, ...
... more antiquity, ...
... design, ...
... music, ...
... and lots of tango!
And if we would like to take some rest, ...
... there is always a place for us.
Welcome to San Telmo Holeevood!

  • The bazaar is open between 10am - 17pm every Sunday. Who wants to avoid the crowd, should arrive in the early hours.

  • The best is to start the walk from Plaza de Mayo (the city's main square) and walk along the Defensa Street from there.
