I’d like you to know the city off the beaten track, not just what you can find yourselves. So I thought of a full Belgrano tour, the neighbourhood where I was born and I grew up. We’ll visit from South to North, from the St Patricks massacre place, back to a XIX century Spanish Garden, Jewish Chinatown and we’ll continue walking the Belgrano’s neighbourhood, where we'll share Mate and stories!
