La Boca
A neighbourhood defined by its immigrant roots, La
Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets
today. Due to its proximity to the river, the
neighbourhood became the preferred settling area for
immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up
living together in the conventillos. Thus, these
