Barracas, Parque Patricios and Nueva Pompeya are three neighborhoods that have had a very different development than the “historic” south that stretches between Plaza de Mayo and La Boca. This “other south”, less picturesque, more fragmented, away from the touristic spots, preserves in its streets the old city factory of the early twentieth century: an area which eventually became popular neighborhoods and the landscape where much of the social housing were built throughout the twentieth century. In the last two decades gentrification began and today we have a “New South”, not necessarily modern or better. But its morphology is changing in order to attract real estate investors and new neighbors. In this tour we visited old factories and the new technological district, street murals, secret societies, worker housing complexes, neo-gothic churches and art deco soccer stadiums. A journey to discover the past and present of the hidden south of the city, where immigration, railways, workers, tango and football are the main players.
