The heart of business-minded Buenos Aires, San Nicolás goes by many names. Calling it Microcentro, El Centro, or San Nicolás doesn't matter as much as what you do while in the city's busiest district. Professionals push deals through and pedestrians peruse boutique windows, all while being watched by cafe patio voyeurs. From days filled with shops and monuments to evenings filled with theatre, San Nicolás lights up its avenues, obelisks, and European-style apartment buildings with endless activity.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
