Buenos Aires/San Telmo

San Telmo is a district of Buenos Aires

Get in

The Independencia station, on the E and C lines, will get you to Avenida 9 de Julio and Avenida Independencia, on the edge of San Telmo. Follow Independencia for six blocks and then swing right for another four to get to Plaza Dorrego. Alternatively, it's an interesting 12 block stroll from Plaza de Mayo, with easy access to the A and D lines. On Sundays, the Plaza Dorrego market spills over onto Defensa for almost 10 additional blocks of souvenirs and flea market crafts.
