    Boca block, La Boca B Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Argentina Boca District is a city landmark in Buenos Aires, its release of artistic enthusiasm attracts many tourists to visit. Its main highlights are three: first, the bright and bold wall color, second, the birthplace of Tango dance, people can enjoy elegant dancing in bar and restaurant, and another famous reason is that there is a football field where the great star Maradona trained and grew up as a child. In the mid-19th century, a large number of Spanish and Italian immigrants were stationed here, mostly engaged in beef processing and transportation, working in the nearby port of Madelo. At first, some people took the paint left over from the construction of transport ships home and painted their residences. Later, many people followed suit and became popular, thus achieving today's colorful facade and graffiti style of Boca District. The most popular one in Boca District is Camillado Street, which attracts thousands of photographers and is said to be named after a tango dance. To Boca Street, this is the first choice. There are many tourists and buses who choose to take taxis. I chose to take the city sightseeing bus LA CIUDAD DE TODOS LOS ARGENTINOS. ARGENTINOS boards from the starting point of May 1st Avenue near Rose Palace. Each person has 300 Argentine pesos, which is 24 hours effective and very convenient.

    The colorful houses on both sides of the streets in Boca can be traced back to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when poor Spanish immigrants came to this place and built many simple iron houses, but the romantic atmosphere in their bones did not allow them to leave their houses dark, but went to the nearby harbor to get some paint left by the painting boat to paint them. My hut, this custom has continued, but it has become Buyi's most famous scenic spot, but also a favorite place for photographers. These paints are sun-resistant and waterproof paintboat paints, so they are durable and fresh and will not be easily mottled. In addition to colorful houses, Boca Youth Team and Tango are also Boca's business cards. There are free Tango performances at restaurants and bar doors from time to time to attract tourists and enjoy the performances while eating.

    Apart from Maradona, Boca District is the birthplace of Tango. Unfortunately, this colorful neighborhood has not received much attention from the government. People in roadside restaurants and souvenir stores pull you into the store. Even the well-dressed tango dancers come forward to take photos with you to collect money.

    To put it bluntly, it's a slum. Generally speaking, the places with more blacks are bound to be rich in color. Boca District is like this, but it's also very dangerous. Never go at night. In the morning, it's recommended to take a taxi to the streets where tourists are gathered.

    Historical reasons have led to the integration of cultures in many countries. So you can see many styles of graffiti and portraits. It's full of colours. It's like a country in fairy tales. Tango performances are also performed in restaurants. The footsteps of the people in this small town need to be constantly fully understood. Of course, social order in this small town should be paid attention to.

    La Boca is a colourful scenic spot for photography, but the security here is really bad. Our uncle on board was forced to watch and advised everyone to come here to be careful not to leave crowded places and wear low-key points.

    The whole neighbourhood is so bright that the three cartoon sculptures in the house at the end of the street are Maradona, Ivetta and Veron, three figures that Argentina can't bypass. Now the children in the street like to wear Messi's Jersey best.

    Boca District is a well-known Street Town in Buenos Aires. It's suitable to go with your partner. It's worth visiting. It's not very impressive. It's a small area with South American characteristics. It can be turned around in an hour. There are many mini-shops along the street, selling small tourist souvenirs.
