On Sundays, San Telmo’s main drag is closed to traffic and the street is a sea of both locals and tourists browsing craft stalls, waiting at vendors’ carts for freshly squeezed orange juice, poking through the antique glass ornaments on display on Plaza Dorrego, and listening to street performances by myriad music groups. Runs from Avenida San Juan to Plaza de Mayo. It’s a tight and crowded scene, so be prepared to bump into people and watch your bag carefully.
