Pasaje de la Defensa Review

Wandering through this well-preserved house affords a glimpse of life in San Telmo's golden era. Behind its elegant but narrow stone facade, the house is built deep into the block around a series of internal courtyards. This type of long, narrow construction is typical of San Telmo, and is known as a casa chorizo (sausage house). Once the home of the well-to-do Ezeiza family, it became a conventillo (tenement), but is now a picturesque spot for antiques and curio shopping. The stores here are open daily 10 to 6.
