One of the trendiest areas of Buenos Aires, Palermo Soho doesn’t lack colour or style. Located in the barrio of Palermo – the largest barrio in Buenos Aires – the area is pretty easy to find. Palermo’s quirky walls have been transformed into attention-grabbing graffiti murals, creating plenty of opportunities for photos that stand out. We loved the narrow, colourful streets and just couldn’t stop ourselves from posing in front of the colourful walls.

Here are some of our favourite shots from colourful Palermo.

Head there on a weekday to avoid the crowds. Although, if you happen to be there on a weekend, don’t forget to check out the open-air markets at Plaza Serrano and Plaza Armenia. There are plenty of stalls that sell authentic, handmade products, such as jewellery, handbags and even dream-catchers (dream catchers look pretty good in photos!).
