The History:

Characterized by it high payements, cobbled streets and colourful facades, La Boca stands out from the rest of the neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, Its Conventillos, old owellings for immigrants, were built with street metal on timber piles and painted with the remains of paint from the boats its distinctive lively colours.
The Caminito in BocaTango is an open air museum that recreates the old conventillos, with clothes hanging from the windows, all its picturesquet characters, stories, dances and songs.
Come discover BocaTango`s “El Conventillo Viviente” and meet its noisy and cheerful tenants: The Tano, always singing songs, The Gallego, who repairs shoes, The Drunkard, constantly getting in everyone`s way while Fatiga, secretly in love with the beautiful Lulú, finds out that the fearsome Malevo forces her into prostitution to his profit. That is when Fatiga, torn by jealousy and loathing, challenges him to a Duel of Knives stirring up a kerfuffle in The Conventillo and even scaring away the policeman who comes to settle things down. Emboldened by his love for Lulú, the inexperienced Fatiga eventually manages to defeat Malevo right before the eyes of the Whole Neighbourhood. In view of such a chivalrous attitude, a new romance blossoms at Doña Cata`s Conventillo and, at last, Fatiga´s feelings for the pretty Lulú are requited.
Next to the Conventillo, a different Buenos Aires that of the opulence, the luxuries, the big halls and glorious nights. All this splendours unfolds at the BocaTango Salón, where the vitreaux café and a French-style canteclari provide the setting for a magnificent tango show with dancers, singers and a orchestra perfonming live.
