Wonderful quarter of Buenos Aires, great for shopping and hanging around. This is the Notting Hill of Buenos Aires...

From reading the other reviews it sounds like a Sunday is the time to visit San Telmo when the merchants are out. We went on a Thursday, interesting. Many antiques if that is your gig. The central park was nice but not overly exciting

The flea market in San Telmo on Sundays is really great. There is no sense of high pressure selling. Argentines are very laid back in this regard and it is such a breath of fresh air. There is great Tango in the square and you'll find items from all over the world and it good shape. Also go to the mercado, which is downhill a bit, and is the permanent inside market in San Telmo--cool building too.

Go on a Sunday, I believe it starts around 10am. We started in Plaza Dorrego and walked up along Defensa. Place full of fun little gifts and pretty crowded. There is also an outdoor spot along Defensa that serves some asado that was pretty good.
