San Telmo is nothing if not colorful and full of life. What I did not know is that they tango in the marketplace on Sundays! Buenos Aires is the heart and soul of tango. Tango is everywhere! There are tango shows, both large and small, tango clubs, tango lessons, and tango on the street corners. One of my favorite tango experiences had to be the tango at the San Telmo Fair. The market, or fair, is open on Sundays, and the tents market everything from food to jewelry to saddles! One of the best things about San Telmo’s market? Tango!

Tango is such a splendid, sensuous dance form :-). How fun to see it right at the market in Buenos Aires!

It was so much fun!
Although the country is known for its wine, gorgeous beaches and breathtaking scenery, it is most famous for its national dance, the tango. Throughout the capital city there are dozens of different tango clubs where professionals put on shows for locals and visitors alike. However, none is more respected and admired then Café Tortoni. The first café in Buenos Aires and the favorite watering hole for many of the capital’s artists, mobsters and government in the early 1920s, Café Tortoni has quickly climbed towards the top of visitor’s must see lists.
