Dorrego Square

Local namePlaza Dorrego
LocationSan Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Plaza Dorrego is a square located in the heart of San Telmo, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In the 19th century, San Telmo was the main residential barrio of the city and Plaza Dorrego was its focal point.

In the past it was referred to as Hueco del Alto or Alto de la carretas as it was the place where wagons would stop before crossing the Tercero del Sur stream on their way downtown. The name had been Alto de San Pedro and later changed to Plaza del Comercio in 1822. In 1905, the name was changed once again to its current form.

The buildings located in the square maintain its original design thanks to the help of the Comisión del Museo de la Ciudad.
