Visit “La Bombonera” (home to Boca Juniors football team), and “El Monumental” (home to River Plate’s), both well-established teams tracing their origins back 100 years. Some say these rivals may be the most important “Derby” in the world after Argentina vs. Brazil.
In La Boca you can tour the old “Genovese” barrio (reason why Boca Juniors is nicknamed “los xeneizes”) with its colorful rustic dwellings and raised sidewalks to prevent water from the “Riachuelo” from entering the homes.
Both museums and the stadium facilities can be seen by the public.
We recommend you end your visit at one of the steakhouses of “La Brigada” or “El Obrero” for lunch.
Or you can even try a “choripan” (pork sausage sandwich) on the banks of the widest river mouth might sound more tantalizing.
