San Telmo
The key to understanding how San Telmo stopped being a classic neighborhood full of crumbling antique townhouses and opened its streets to young bars and design stores resides in a plan that the government of the City of Buenos Aires launched several years ago, in which it offered very affordable mortgages and rents to young designers specifically. The neighborhood was revived thanks to these subsidies, albeit more slowly than Palermo, and art galleries, clothing and accessories stores, cultural centers and bars of all kinds sprouted along the streets.  Today, most of the action is centered around Dorrego Square. The culminating point is the intersection with Chile Street. A notable shop is Pablo Ramirez, one of the great Argentine fashion designers.
