Pasaje de la Defensa

Wandering through this well-preserved house affords a glimpse of life in San Telmo's golden era. Behind an elegant but narrow stone facade, the building extends deep into the block around a series of internal courtyards. This type of elongated construction—known as a casa chorizo or "sausage house"—is typical of San Telmo. Once the private residence of the well-to-do Ezeiza family, it became a conventillo (tenement), but is now a picturesque spot for antiques and curio shopping. The stores here are open from 10 to 6 daily.
