Patio de los Lecheros – Caballito Neighborhood

Patio de los Lecheros, or “the patio of the milkmen” is an open-air food court in the heart of the Caballito neighborhood. The name comes from the site’s history as a former train station. where milk would arrive to the city from the dairy farms outside of the city until the sale of unpasteurized milk was prohibited in 1961. The choice of this location and its name is fitting for its current use because the men who would wait for the train bringing milk to sell it in the city were immigrants from diverse origins, and the current food patio reflects this diverse cultural legacy.

Street artists place urban art in plain sight. What was once clandestine, today is celebrated in the most popular neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. Feel like a street artist for a day!

The streets of Buenos Aires are today a colorful open sky gallery; art is spread around everywhere. Amateur and renown urban artists display their talent on the city walls. You might think that the artistic intervention is spontaneous, but not always this is the case.

On this street art experience, first we will take an “inspiration walk” to watch some of the most impressive murals and learn about the artists behind them. Coming to know about the past and present of urban art in Argentina will give us an overview of its context. Among street art there’s many other media besides the traditional spray paint graffiti, such as stencil art and stickers.

Not everything is about history and facts. We will also soak in the fundamental graffiti techniques and skills. Hopefully, after all this information, we will be eager to get down to work and contribute to the city with our own artistic intervention.

Beginning the open air workshop guided by an urban artist, we will loosen our hands sketching a little bit. At this point we already know that -usually- they actually prepare their work before setting it up on the wall. One mate after another, we will chat and have fun immersing in this particular artsy world. 


Once we are ready, we will finally go to a specially prepared (and authorized) wall in the streets, to leave our mark in Buenos Aires. An attempt at permanence in an impermanent arena of contemporary art.

After having finished up our work, we will relax at the first gallery ever dedicated to promoting, exhibiting and selling street art in this city.

This is an original cultural immersion experience, highly recommended for visitors looking for a behind the scenes encounter with Buenos Aires.

The best way to really learn a language is to live it through day to day situations. That is why we bring you this fun, unique and friendly city promenade, joined by a local person that doesn’t even seem to be a guide, but a friend that shows you around and tells you facts and stories about Buenos Aires.

Walking through the lively and charming streets of Palermo neighborhood, you will merge with locals, hop into designer shops and fascinate yourself with the current street art scene in Buenos Aires.

In the course of the walk, you will experience a different basic Spanish class, distinguished by the introduction of Lunfardo, the porteño slang. Words, expressions and/or verbs such as bondi, laburo, chabón, afanar and al divino botón might be heard and learnt.

Lunfardo was born in Buenos Aires during the second half of the 19th century, due to the contribution of immigration – specially Italian – and words of indigenous, African, and Gaucho origin.

At first, this jargon was used by criminals and soon by people from the lower and lower middle classes. At the beginning of the 20th century, lunfardo began to spread among all social classes, either by the usual use, because it was common in the lyrics of tango, or both.

Nowadays, some of its terms are part of the natural language of almost all of Argentina, Uruguay and, to a lesser extent, Paraguay. While some words of the old lunfardo of the early 20th century have been modified, new ones have also been added. In 2011 it was considered that the lunfardo already consisted of around 6000 words.

On this “city talk”, while going in and out of every kind shops, you will learn how to apply the porteño slang to feel like a local living the everyday life, and learn about the history and present of the capital city and Argentina, interacting with great venues in a real social, cultural and fun immersion.

This unique experience is not only an amusing way to get to know Buenos Aires, but  a must for everyone who wants to get an insider!
