Buenos Aires City neighborhoods are special places which represent the identity of their neighbors. Every one of them has its special spots, its history and characters. Hostel Colonial will introduce you to every neighborhood you can visit. We will include the touristic ones and the others: those whose magic is habitually hidden for regular visitors. Today, we will tell you about one of the smallest neighborhoods in the city: Coghlan.
Coghlan is located in center north of Buenos Aires City. Its name comes from the train station located in the middle of the neighborhood which tributes the Irish engineer John Coghlan. The stations was founded on February 1st, 1891. That date was declared Coghlan’s Neighborhood Day. The place is delimited by the Mitre Railroad course, Nuñez St., Zapiola St., Roosevelt St., Ricardo Balbín Ave., Monroe Ave., Estomba St., Tronador St., Congreso Ave. and Quesada St.
The most interesting places in Coghlan are: the train station and its famous brindge (Pedro Rivera St. and Naón St.), the Ana Frank Museum (2647 Superí St.), the Santa María de los Ángeles Chapel (3250 Naón St.), the English and French styled houses surrounding the station in Tronador St, Estomba St. and Melián St., and the Tábano Sport Club where great tango singers as Roberto Goyeneche started singing.
From our Hostel Colonial, you can get to Coghlan by walking 6 blocks to Retiro Train Station and taking the Mitre Railroad to Coghlan Station.
