Neighborhood: La Boca
Overview

These picturesque city blocks run along the edge of the winding river inlet Riachuelo, in the famous port neighborhood of La Boca. Genoese immigrants, settling here in the early 1900s, built their housing on elevated sidewalks as a precaution against flooding. Wrought iron balconies characterize these dwellings, painted in spectacular colors, originally from leftover paint from the dockyard ships. Together with the port and the railroad, Vuelta de Rocha, comprises a unique district, rich in immigrant history and heritage.
