Overview

Every corner of Buenos Aires is characterized by the different passions of the Argentines. To begin with, our beloved tango, with a 4×4 beat and a very characteristic rhythm, takes us back to years of history. Its lyrics generate the nostalgia embodied in this rhythm. La Boca owes its name to its location at the mouth of the Riachuelo in the Río de la Plata. Used as a port over the years, its port activity attracted numerous immigrants, especially Genoese, who settled in the area in search of work. Historically, they spoke the Xeneize dialect, that of the Genoese, as if they were in their homeland.

La Boca: soccer passion

Buenos Aires and its two passions is characterized by feelings. These arise from the construction of the houses in the area, which were made of wood and sheet metal painted with countless bright colors from the leftover paint from the port, giving the neighborhood a particular look and full of charm. Thus La Boca attracts us with its picturesque colors, fun, noisy and melancholic inhabitants. La Boca celebrates almost 150 years of history and we cannot fail to mention the soccer passion it generates in both Argentines and foreign tourists who visit us daily. Passion of multitudes.
