Most people visiting Tigre in the province of Buenos Aires go there for the boat rides on the delta but the city of Tigre has so much more to offer. If you take a scroll through the city you will be able to find incredible hidden chic gems.
When you least expect it; on the corner of a street, on an abandoned building or just on an empty wall, the street art pops up. These amazing pieces of art adds extra color and life to an otherwise grey and boring urban space.
As much as I dislike common graffiti, as much I’m completely in love with cities that allows for this kind of amazing works in the public space. And the street art in Tigre is no exception. I captured some of the pieces I saw on my scroll around the city but I believe that if you spend a bit more time wandering around the city you will be able to find more pieces.
Bohemian Boulevard de Tigre
The largest concentration of art in Tigre seems to be centered on Boulevard de Tigre, or Boulevard Saenz Peña as the correct name is. This bohemian oasis of art is definitely not to be missed on your visit to Tigre! Here you will find small chic vintage shops to cute cafés.
Remember to enter in the side walk on the corner of Café Almacen de Flores! I’m sure you will be amazed by the pieces of arts that reveal in front of your eyes. Take a break and breathe in this bohemian atmosphere.

Hand craft shops
Along the way from Boulevard Sanez Peña toward the old port area of Tigre, Puerto de Frutos, you will find a great variety of shops selling all kind of chic handcraft.
Even though you might not have more space in your luggage for more souvenirs after visiting the San Telmo market, make sure to enter some of these hidden gems around the city. Take time to admire and get inspired by the crafts.
