Besides ever-burgeoning Palermo, Belgrano is one of the largest barrios in Buenos Airesspanning an area of 6.8km. Although not instantly recognizable for its tourist attractions, it is a pleasant neighborhood for walking and admiring the residential homes.
Stretching back from the River Plate, the barrio of Belgrano lies to the northeast of Buenos Aires Centro and is bordered to the northwest by Nuñez, to the southeast by Palermo and to the south by Coghlan, Colegiales and Villa Urquiza. Originally, the area occupied by the neighborhood formed part of the Pago de los Montes Grandes, which was a flourishing terrain for livestock grazing that spread from Retiro to San Isidro.
Named after General Manuel Belgrano, the creator of the Argentine flag, the history of the barrio is an interesting one. Following the general’s death in 1820 a law was passed to give his name to the next new town, which eventually happened in 1857. The then town witnessed so much instant growth that it was soon declared a city and in 1880 even served as the nation’s capital, albeit for no more than a few weeks. In 1887, the federal district of Buenos Aires grew to incorporate Belgrano and Flores (also a town at the time), thus creating the neighborhoods of today.
Recognized as an upper to middle class neighborhood, Belgrano is loosely split into four areas: Belgrano R, Belgrano C, Central Belgrano and Bajo Belgrano. The major characteristic of the barrio is its residential feel and the presence of grand 19th century homes lining wide, leafy avenues.
Things to see, do or both
Rather than being inundated with must-see sights, Belgrano is a great place for aimlessly strolling and discovering what lies around the next corner. A popular meeting point of locals is Barrancas de Belgrano, a green park designed by French-Argentine landscaper Carlos Thays. At the heart of the park is a pergola and if you are lucky you might catch the public milongas (tango dances) that take place during the weekend.
Marking the center of Belgrano, you will find Plaza Manuel Belgrano, a pleasant square that hosts a weekend artisan fair where local venders display a range of handicrafts and jewelry. If you take a walk around the edge of the plaza, you will discover some of Belgrano’s most famous landmarks. The Iglesia de Inmaculda Concepcion de Belgrano, also known as La Redonda, is a stunning church where you’ll often get a glimpse of Argentine weddings. On the corner of Juramento and Vuelta de Obligada streets is the Museo de Arte Espanol Enrique Larretadedicated to the life of writer Enrique Larreta and one block east along Juramento is the Museo Sarmiento, which houses memorabilia belonging to Domingo Faustino Sarmiento and Nicolas Avellaneda, both former presidents of Argentina.
Owing to its affluence, Belgrano is also popular for shopping. Avenida Cabildo runs the entire width of the barrio and is lined with a huge quantity of clothing and shoe shops ranging from chain stores to independent boutiques.
If you have come to Belgrano in search of something different then head past Barrancas de Belgrano in the Belgrano C area 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 Olazabal. This is a great location to experience the life of the city’s Asian population, pick up some souvenirs or dine out. It is here that you will also find the city’s best selection of fresh fish; ideal if you are staying in a rented apartment and feel like eating in.
