La Boca

Named after its location at the mouth of the Río Riachuelo, the vibrant, working class neighborhood of La Boca was built by Italian immigrants from Genoa.  Brightly painted corrugated-metal buildings line the touristy streets and walkways around the Caminito where local artists display their paintings and street performers entertain the crowds against colorful backdrops.
