Caminito - Review

Among the numerous street museums situated in Buenos Aires, the Caminito is the most well known pastel art gallery of Buenos Aires. The Caminito dates back to the 1800s, when a tributary of the Riachuelo River had its route through the land of Caminito.  As the stream dried up, the bed was restructured to make it possible to lay railway lines of the Ferrocarril Buenos Aires y Puerto de la Ensenada.

Later after the railway service was discontinued, the disused tracks through the spread of Caminito were removed and an Argentine painter named Benito Quinquela Martin became the creator of the modern Caminito. He refurbished the décor of the walls and houses of the area through his artistic skills and creativities in pastel colors. Moreover, he built a performing stage for the regional performers, which has been transformed into a proper concert hall. Juan de Dios Filiberto wrote a famous eponymous song about the Caminito that has garnered quite a bit of attention for it. This place is guaranteed to cheer up the most melancholy soul!

Caminito is one of the main tourist attractions to visit and should definitely feature in your Buenos Aires 5 Days Itinerary.
