Belgrano

An enchanted neighborhood in northern Buenos Aires.

Five smaller neighborhoods comprise Belgrano, a northern Buenos Aires area renowned for its lush streetscape and lively demeanor. Retreat from Chinatown and Cabildo Avenue's commercial bustle and you'll find yourself amid a leafy dreamscape where white stone residences and clean high-rises enrobe in trunks, branches, and twigs. Despite its refinedly urban aesthetic, Belgrano remains firmly rooted in its down-to-earth attitude.

Barrancas de Belgrano is a splendid green park designed by the famous French landscaper Charles Thays, who also designed Palermo woods...This promenade is one of the favorite of local families who gather here especially during weekends. It is very common to see children on their rollerblades and bikes. Sunny days in Barrancas de Belgrano are perfect for sunbathers since they can either listen to live music and enjoy tango dancers, or simply stroll and relax. A popular craft fair is held during Saturdays as well."
