Overview

We are Vero and Jesi for  “La Pampa y La Via Tours”, and together with Juan ( Juan_I) we will discover Villa Crespo , a middle-class neighborhood in Buenos Aires, located in the geographical center of the city.

The streets of Villa Crespo are adorned with many murals and charismatic stencils made by international and local artists.

A burgeoning foodie hot spot, a typical Tango Porteño neighborhood, the lively Villa Crespo is located just southwest of Palermo, has become a fashionable haunt for the city’s youth. The district is most notable for its array of bars and eateries.

After a walk-through Villa Crespo, we are going to visit the surroundings of Club Atletico Atlanta whose yellow and blue colors, were chosen from the awnings that decorated the neighborhood’s stores in early years. Since the team lacked an official home stadium for its first six decades, it was nicknamed “Los Bohemios”, as the team would wander from place to place forced to play “home” games in other team’s stadiums.

The team stadium, “Don León Kolbovsky”, is a tribute to the man who presided over the club when the stadium began to be built and has a capacity of 34,000. The club is often associated with the Jewish community because of the historical support of Jews in the area of Villa Crespo.

As you know, Argentina is a nation that has always breathed football and generates stories and legends decade after decade along with a barbecue paired with a good wine or Fernet. That’s why we are going to conclude our tour at Café San Bernardo grabbing some beers and talking about fascinating Argentinian football stories in a great venue.

Lets meet up next Saturday 31st – 10.30 am ARG

Great tour!

Excellent morning walking through the streets of Atlanta's neighbourhood, Villa Crespo, and listening to the stories that built the place as we see it today. Jesi, Vero and Juan were excellent storytellers and shared with us their knowledge about history and football. Highly recommended!

Villa Crespo tour

Nice experience with Vero and Jesi last Saturday in Villa Crespo. I discovered thanks to them an emblematic neighborhood of Buenos Aires and with Juan the history of Atlanta Soccer Club.

I have always loved the stories behind every corner of the city, and reliving the fields and soccer players was great
