San Nicolas – the Microcentro of Buenos Aires

San Nicolas – the Microcentro of Buenos Aires


San Nicolás, the busiest district of Buenos Aires, known as Microcentro or El Centro, takes pride in being the center to the city’s business and art districts. San Nicolás grows as a fascinating destination in the capital with its teeming boulevards and tranquil corners.

This trail will amaze you with its photo-worthy landmarks, dynamic performances, and pulsating shops and plazas. It goes past at least ten attractions, though the route stretches for only 5 miles, it may take the whole morning to enjoy all of the spots.


Roads in the city are mostly well paved and managed.


Luna Park on Av. Eduardo Madero is where to begin the trip. This is located just five minutes walking from the Tourist Assistance Center - Puerto Madero.

Food and drink

Café Tortoni should rank the first on your list of lunch or dinner, or even a short break from the long journey.

If a traditional Argentina restaurant is what you are after, La Morada can be a nice option.
