When you enter from the crowded San Telmo Street in this passage, you immediately feel that you will find some secret places. So quiet and unobtrusive, it makes you feel like you are traveling with you. You can find your corner to rest and taste delicious domestic quality food and grapes.
This colorful passage is one of those "pearls" hidden in the less touristy areas of the city. It is located in a rarely visited neighborhood and that also gives it its charm. The idea came from the artist Marino Santa María, who has his workshop in that passage. It is only three blocks, so the tour is done early. After the walk, you can go for a drink in one of the nearby bars, which are also popular.
The Lanin passage is the hidden gem of the Barracas neighborhood. It is a cobbled street where the houses have their facades artistically intervened with tiles and mosaics of all colors, the work of the artist Marino Santa María. It could be said that it is an open-air museum. It is one of my favorite places to photograph in the city. Getting there is easy (you can walk from Constitución station or with any bus to Plaza Colombia). I recommend it to anyone who wants to know the lesser known side of Buenos Aires.
