With its residential feel, it is filled with grand 19th-century homes lining wide, leafy avenues.
Along with ever-growing Palermo, Belgrano is one of the largest barrios in Buenos Aires. Although not instantly recognizable for its tourist attractions, it’s a pleasant neighborhood for walking and admiring the residential homes.
Stretching back from the Río de la Plata, the barrio lies to the northeast of Buenos Aires Centro. It’s bordered to the northwest by Núñez, to the southeast by Palermo and to the south by Coghlan, Colegiales and Villa Urquiza.
Rather than being inundated with must-see sights, Belgrano is a great place for aim- lessly strolling and discovering what lies around the next corner. A popular meeting point of locals is Barrancas de Belgrano, a park designed by French-Argentine land- scaper Carlos Thays. At the heart of the park is a pergola, and if you're lucky you might catch the public milongas (tango dances) that take place during the weekend.
If you've come to Belgrano in search of something different, head past Barrancas de Belgrano to find Barrio Chino (Chinatown). A collection of around 100 Asian-owned shops and restaurants, this mini-barrio covers two blocks of Arribeños street, between Juramento and Olazábal. This is a great location to experience the life of the city’s Asian population, pick up some souvenirs or dine out. It's here that you'll also find the city’s best selection of fresh fish – ideal for having some home-cooked meal at your StayUnico apartment.
