San Telmo

"Is the old city, blooming in the limed walls and wells, since ever here is the mix of cultures, colors and ranks, is the remind of talcumed wigs, of the sweat scent of black people taken out by war and plagues, through this streets advances irrepressible the "candombe" and the hive, the sabre blows, the shrapnel and the stone throwings, the "colorados" british were twice defeated by a horde of slaves, indians, mixed, peasants with uniform and devoted ladies; What Napoleon couldn't do, was done by these narrow streets and the fatuous courage. And also here, the Tango omnipresent is a cigarette butt that shines between the paving stones a summer night". Welcome to San Telmo.

San Telmo is the oldest neighbourhood of the City, in facts during the first centuries, was whole the City. Initially called San Pedro Highs because is elevated position. The devotion to Saint Pedro Gonzalez -very preciated by spanish sailors- and patron saing of the old Santo Domingo convent gave its current name. Many others convents and religious orders were established in this neighbourhood. Here lived with quite proximity whole the social classes, because San Telmo. Only after the yellow fever of 1870, the high classes departured to the area of Retiro, that in those times was a waste ground, although they still assisting to the traditional Carnival Parties of Lezama Square. They moved not so because of the plagues as for regroup as a social class and selfreinforce through houses so much impressive than their original's ones.
