Parque Lezama

Park in San Telmo

Leafy Parque Lezama hosts elderly chess-playing gentlemen, families toting mate (traditional Argentine tea) gourds, and teenagers kissing on park benches.

Don’t miss the striking late-19th-century Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa on the north side of the park; it's the work of architect Alejandro Christophersen and was built from materials shipped over from St Petersburg.
