La Boca

The meeting point is the intersection between Pinzón and Del Valle Iberlucea streets, in front of the Bombonera, the legendary Boca Juniors stadium.
There we evoke its history and the history of the neighborhood, illustrated by the murals that decorate its walls.
Along the route we will see traces of the massive presence of Italian immigration.
We continue along Caminito street and its surroundings, a true open-air museum created in the 1950s according to a project by the painter Benito Quinquela Martín, with its colorful houses made of wood and sheet metal. On this famous street, we will see artists’ stalls and brightly colored houses, occupied at the beginning of the 20th century by immigrant families.
Then we will go towards the Riachuelo, until we reach the meander of the river where the first port of the city once worked.
Always bordering the riverbank, we will see the facades of the Fundación Proa art gallery and the Quinquela Martín Museum, culminating the visit next to the old Transbordador Bridge, a monumental wrought iron structure, which has become the symbol of the neighborhood.
