You certainly should go and take pictures of the La Boca barrio. This bright neighborhood was built by emigrants from Italy, who painted their houses with different colors: there was not enough of one color for the whole house, so they took the leftover paints after the ships were painted. Subsequently, this became a tradition, and the barrio is just wonderfully beautiful now.
