Belgrano

Belgrano is essentially an upper middle-class residential suburb, and most tourists visiting Buenos Aires on a short trip won’t have cause to venture out here. However, there are a few highlights to check out if you do find yourself this side of Palermo. Belgrano—named after the sugarcane fields that once grew here—is home to the city’s growing Chinatown (most of the residents are actually from Taiwan), where you can find decent Asian restaurants and great supermarkets packed with exotic produce (don’t miss the enormous fresh passionfruit in autumn).

If you’re not on too tight a budget, Belgrano has some great shopping. Wander down Avenida Cabildo for high-end clothes and shoe stores, or check out Plaza Belgrano on a Saturday for the small market full of crafts, bric-a-brac and performers.

The parks here, an extension of those in Palermo, are spacious and relaxing, and continue right down onto the waterfront. There are also a number of museums if you’ve already covered the big ones in town. The best, Museo Enrique Larreta, set in the famous author's home, is worth a visit for the beautiful garden and extensive art collection.



Other neighborhoods in Buenos Aires: Villa Paranacito, San Telmo, Northern Suburbs: Vincente Lopez, Olivos, San Isidro, Near Buenos Aires, Recoleta, Tigre, Recoleta/Barrio Norte, Barracas, Abasto and Congreso.
