El Zanjón, tunnels & mystery
This tour takes you to the first settlements of Buenos Aires. Beneath a beautifully restored 1830s mansion lies a spectacular labyrinth of wide, vaulted brick tunnels walled off and forgotten long ago. Tour these centuries-old foundations, walls, wells and cisterns to discover surprising stories of how the city’s past mirrors its present. Original brickwork, enticing archways and skilled ironwork are a gateway to the mysterious maze below.
Casa Mínima, the narrowest house in Buenos Aires
At just over two meters wide—Casa Mínima retains its original 200-year-old clay walls and adobe plaster. Along with a visit to the adjacent mansion, its beautiful courtyard and Memory Wall, this guided tour traces the early traditions of Buenos Aires through to slavery and the birth of Tango.
A Tango Lesson at Casa Mínima, an unforgettable experience
Take a tango lesson at the heart of the Milonga - the space where tango was once danced. Enjoy a glass of premium Malbec wine and storytelling, as a prelude to a tango lesson by renown members of the “Tango Desire” group. The lesson will end with a brief performance to frame this unforgettable experience.
