The neighbourhood of Caballito is located in the heart of Buenos Aires. It´s arquitecture consists mostly in low houses. Home of several argentine sculptors such as: Troiano Troiani, Luis Perlotti, Juan Carlos Ferraro, Lidia Battisti, among others.
In this "barrio" there´s a well-known park called Parque Rivadavia. Great place for philately lovers, used books, and music.
Origin of the name "Caballito": The name is said to come from the horse-shaped weather vane from a local pulpería (bar) owned by an italian inmigrant named Nicolás Vila. Caballito meaning "Little horse".
Horacio tells us more about his area: "The neighborhood combines a quiet residential area with a dynamic comercial life. The streets are full of trees and there are lots of parks. It's nice to walk around. There is a eco-bike station 3 blocks away and another one in the square. There are lots of nice cafés very close and access to moovie theaters and mall 5 minutes away by bus and 15 blocks by walk. Besides it's an artistic neighborhood where you will find the Sculpture Museum Luis Perlotti and the Ferraro Basttisti Museum."
