When the South became industrial
Continuing our tours of neighborhoods of Buenos Aires we will reach the very southern limits of the city by visiting Barracas. The area was once an industrial one, populated by immigrants and then nearly forgotten in the 90´s. During the last years, a process of gentrification is giving some parts of the “barrio” a new cultural movement.
We will see the biggest mural in Argentina, among others. We will also walk Pasaje Lanín and learn the stories that marked the lives of the families that lived in the neighborhood.
Meet the artist: We will also have access to Marino Santa María´s art studio. He decorated Pasaje Lanín and we will meet up with him!
