Belgrano is one of the oldest districts in the city. It started off as a small town in the north of Buenos Aires in 1855 and was named in honour of Manuel Belgrano, one of the most important leaders in the history of Argentina and the designer of the Argentinean flag. This small town soon became a city and then it grew to become one of the main districts in the Capital Federal.

There are different zones within Belgrano; Belgrano C is the business zone and is popular with tourists as it is home to the Sarmiento Museum and the church, Parroquia de la Inmaculada ConcepciĆ³n, as well as General Manuel Belgrano Square which hosts a craft fair every weekend. It is also where you will find the popular Chinatown.

Belgrano R is an upper-middle class residential area and Lower Belgrano has a mixture of lower and upper class residences. If you go to this district you should visit the park in Barracas de Belgrano.
