Colegiales

Flea markets, multi-story murals, and wrought iron balconies in a cultivated urban oasis.

More than its streets, Colegiales cobbles together pieces of Porteño tradition with modern amusements. This strikingly tranquil residential neighbourhood 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 neighbouring Belgrano and Palermo.
