La Boca

Known as the birthplace of the tango, this one-time shipyard has a famous walkway, the Caminito, where tango dancers perform and artists exhibit their work. It is known throughout the sporting world as the home of Boca Juniors, one of South America's top football clubs, where D.Maradona played during the remainder of the 1981 season and 1982 and secured his first league title. Ok I cheated today 'cause there are 2 pictures and not one. Still enjoy :)
