Anibal Troilo Mural
San Telmo is a neighborhood of Tango like La Boca and Almagro.
On Av. Independencia and Av. Colón there is a very beautiful mural dedicated to one of the glories of tango, the bandoneonist Anibal Troilo.

In these old mansions, you can find cafes, restaurants and antique shops.
It is a historic square because the independence of 1816 was announced to the people of the city there.
