You will also visit the circular building of Palais de Glace, where tango was introduced into the high society ballrooms for the first time, leaving behind the slums and the brothels.

Continue to the Palermo Parks. In the XIX century “lo de Hansen” was one of the first tango places where the high class society used to hide while they learnt this dance, which was not appropiate at the time.

Palermo was an area of “malevos” (small-time hoods) and “cuchilleros” (knife-fighters).

Continue to Lezama Park, visit the National Historic Museum and a brief stop at the typical “Café Británico”.

As an optional alternative and according to opening, visit the Zanjón de Granados, a multi-space full of history and myth which constitutes a true work of arqueology. This restored delerict mansion from the XVII century preserves the history of the different periods, all this within an austere and modern framework which develops into a work of art. Later, lunch at “Los Inmortales’ in Corrientes Avenue, which used to be frequented by Carlos Gardel, who also performed in some of its theatres.

This restaurant is a real photographic museum which portrays well known local personalities. Continue the visit to La Boca neighbourhood, where tango was born, at the Riachuelo River bank, the place where Genoese immigrants settled at the end of last century, creating this picturesque Italian style neighborhood.
