Villa Santa Rita neighborhood is one of the phantom neighborhoods of Buenos Aires City. Most of the Porteños confuses it with nearby Floresta and Villa del Parque neighborhoods. Some other think they’re in La Paternal, but the truth is that Villa Santa Rita has limits of their own. It is a cute residential place with a large water stream down below and lots of history. Hostel Colonial tells you all about this great spot.
The place is crossed by some of the most important avenues of north Buenos Aires: Juan B. Justo Ave, Nazca Ave, Gaona Ave and Álvarez Jonte Ave. Nevertheless, the largest commercial area of this neighborhood is Cuenca St (the first paved street of the area and still one of the most relevant walks). It also houses one of the most important chapels of Buenos Aires: the Santa Rita Chapel (3443 Camarones St).
Other great attractions are: the small passages that you’ll find all over this neighborhood with 70 years old houses (in a square delimited by Álvarez Jonte Ave, Nazca Ave, Cuenca St and Juan B. Justo Ave), the Israeli Hospital (Nazca Ave and Terrada St), the commercial areas of Nazca Ave and Cuenca St, among others. Don’t miss the chance to discover a beautiful quiet place as Villa Santa Rita!
