On October 18, 1959, at 6 p.m., spectacular fireworks on the dock of La Boca district announed the official opening of Caminito Street Museum.

Neighbors crowded Vuelta de Rocha and Magallanes Street. Benito Quinquela Martín and Juan de Dios Filiberto welcomed Mayor Hernán Giralt; Jorge Garrido, the Principal Notary for Argentina, and other representatives and city councilors of that time.
Today, this cobble stone street from another era, a seven-minute walk from end to end has the highest density of tourists per square foot of the City of Buenos Aires. On Caminito, you can purchase works by contemporary artists or watch street performers, all flashing with the typical Buenos Aires style.
