More than its streets, Colegiales cobbles together pieces of Porteño tradition with modern amusements. This strikingly tranquil residential neighborhood embraces BA's long-withstanding cafe culture but sets it against the backdrop of contemporary interior decor. Flea markets and multi-story murals attract vintage urbanists while manicured gardens and wrought iron balconies offer peaceful respites from the more hurried paces of neighboring Belgrano and Palermo.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

The neighborhood is mostly residential...some [blocks] featuring the original cobblestones from a century ago. Many artists have chosen it for their headquarters, but it is still far from the trendiness of Palermo--it's much more quiet here. However, it's very close to Palermo SoHo and Hollywood, and there's a couple of bars and restaurants on Elcano Ave."
