La Boca Guided Tour — May

RSVP to Ezequiel: 

Colors in La Boca

A guided walk through one of the most picturesque areas of the city

La Boca is known around the world and visited by every tourist who comes to Buenos Aires. But we don’t often connect the modern La Boca with the city’s history. On this tour we will take a look at La Boca with a different lens, relating the Río de La Plata with the work of the well known La Boca painter Benito Quinquela Martín.

Ezequiel will guide us through Caminito Street, a former tenement, and then take us to visit one of the floors of the Quinquela Martín Museum.
Cost: BAIN Downtown member: 240 pesos
Non-BAIN Downtown member: 290 pesos

The cost includes the entrance to the Quinquela Martín Museum.

Date: Saturday, May 27
Time: 10:00 am

Meeting Point: At the entrance of Fundación Proa, 1929 Don Pedro de Mendoza Avenue. Buenos Aires
