Prepare for color, football and quite some crowds. La Boca has a special vibe so take the time to walk around.
Boca Juniors Stadium
Probably, even if not a football fan, you might have heard of Boca Juniors, with the most won titles in the Argentinian first league. Boca's home stadium, Estadio Alberto J. Armando, is more commonly known as La Bombonera.
I did not get to see the stadium as it was closing right when we arrived, but took some pictures on the outside.
Stop at the souvenir shops as it's crazy Maradona, Messi & Co. And I'll stop with football here :)
Stroll to the Caminito
When it comes to this neighborhood as I mentioned it does not lack color :P. Your pictures will look perfect and so into summer mood with all the strong colors around you
Did you know that name names is inspired by the tango "Caminito" (1926), composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto.
Spot some streetart
From the famous Mafalda character to random murals and up to European Street Artists like Ben Eine, you'll see quite some art around.
The Transporter Bridge Of La Boca
Well it's just pure industrial to me and not in use today, but its purpose was to "link between the city of Buenos Aires and Maciel island across the Riachuelo river". (Source)
De la Ribera Theatre
The theater was inaugurated in 1971 and is related to the history of a local well-known Argentinian painter: Quinquela Martin. The artist donated the land to the National Theatre School Board, after turning it into a cultural center with many artistic choices for people. For this reason, the walls of the theater are in the hall visitors with many murals painted by the same Quinquela Martin (Source)
The Theater was declared by the government, The Official & Exclusive room for Tango after the tango was included in the âCultural Heritage of Humanity in 2009 (adapted translation)
Please stay in the touristy part which is safe, as outside this, there are some dangerous areas. There is police around so if they notice you go into a wrong direction they will guide you towards a safe road.
