Argentine. Buenos Aires. La Boca

Capi4ca • 3 minutes read • May 22nd, 2016
Immigrants from Italy settled in the neighborhood of La Boca in the late 19th century. It was the first port of 

Buenos Aires

. The famous Argentine tango was born in this neighborhood.
Now La Boca has become a tourist attraction. Everything closes at 5 pm because it's getting dark, and the neighborhood is unsafe. It is better not to go there in the evening.
