live blog: san telmo

The Sunday antiques market in San Telmo is the largest in the city, filling Plaza Dorrego with kiosks of every kind and spilling out into the surrounding streets that radiate off of La Defensa.  The area has been known as the city’s antiques district since the 1970’s and prior to that it was the neighborhood all the best families called home – until a Yellow Fever epidemic sent them scrambling over the cliff to Recolta, which now boasts some of the best preserved French and Italian architecture in the city.

San Telmo is also home to one mean churro, stuffed with dulce de leche.
