Areas of Palermo
With more than 16 square kilometers, Palermo is the largest district of the city and is divided into two distinct sectors:
Palermo Chico: it is an area of ??palaces and residences in which a large part of the high society of Buenos Aires lives.
Palermo Viejo: this old area of ??"casas chorizo" (adjoining rooms around an open gallery) and low houses, was restored for the installation of cafes, restaurants, designer houses and numerous boutiques, making it a very pleasant neighborhood.
The most animated area of ??Palermo is known as Palermo Soho, inside Palermo Viejo. The nerve center of the area is Plaza Serrano (officially Plaza Cortázar). This is where the best shops and restaurants are located.
