for many years, this neighborhood was a marshy area, populated by shacks and warehouses. in the mid-nineteenthcentury, port activity grew and La Boca became a maritime district. TO cope with the flooding of the Riachuelo River, immigrants built their houses on stilts and painted them with leftover paint given away at the shipyards. Later, artists and bohemians came to live here, giving rise to this picturesque neighborhood, immortalized in the works of the artist Benito Quinquela Martin.
Rivadavia Avenue divides these two neighborhoods so characteristic of Buenos Aires.
