La Boca is the oldest, most colorful, and most authentic neighborhood in Buenos Aires.
The neighborhood was settled and built by Italian immigrants that worked in the warehouses and meatpacking plants in the area. La Boca is partly an artist colony, and mostly a working-class neighborhood.
Few tourists venture out of the main street in La Boca, Caminito, because the rest of the neighborhood is not considered safe.
The most famous street in La Boca is called Caminito(little path), and is the center of tourist activity in the area.
The street is commonly shown on postcards for its multi-colored houses. Many artists also show off their work on the sides of the main street.
