Spend an afternoon or evening exploring this modest neighborhood—reportedly the birthplace of the tango, and known for its dance halls, which cater to a mix of tourists and locals. Be sure to stop at the Museo Casa Carlos Gardel, the childhood residence of tango’s most famous singer.

Old masters like Rubens and Picasso are well represented, but the highlight of this cultural institution is its Argentinean art—the most extensive collection in the world.

Its most famous resident? None other than controversial first lady Eva Duarte Perón.
