San Telmo 

is a famous tourist area in 

Buenos Aires

. There are streets with cobblestones, and old tram rails.
San Telmo is the Old Town. Stone cobbled streets, old houses, restaurants, and hotels, antique shops, as well as heaps of foreigners. There are also cosy places, and uncomfortable ones as well.
