Photographer's Note

The Caminito street, of hardly 100 meters in length, is pedestrian and of her so many things can be said, that it deserves a chapter aside.

CAMINITO; It is a as small street as particular. In her there are no doors. Some windows, some full balcony of plants and hung clothes to dry. Their painted walls of different colors remember Venice to us. In them there is all type of murals, ceramics and different adornments.

It was in the beginning simply a branch of the Railroad, earth flood, grassland and stones. To the place was called it - the curve -, the one that soon became - caminito- that shortened distances. That was famous "caminito" by that Juan de Dios Filiberto journeyed to newspaper, who soon wrote the tango that takes its name. The initiative to put that name to him to the street less arose nothing than from its friend Benito Quinquela Martin, great Argentine painter.

Today it is a tourist street, nonsingle visited by the foreigners, but by Argentineans of all the country, proud of that so colorful place. They are the thousand all week ends.
