Chacarita

A modest neighborhood northwest of Palermo, Chacarita provides passage into local BA.

Every morning resembles a casual Sunday morning in Chacarita, a mostly residential community centered on local markets and local sports teams. Park benches, corner cafes, and the neighborhood's historic cemetery account for the majority of Chacarita's favored public spaces. Their unpretentious atmospheres foster its unhurried attitude and comfortable appeal. Getting around Buenos Aires is simple from Chacarita—Federico Lacroze station's trains stop in the neighborhood.
