En el barrio de San Telmo hay muchos lugares ocultos para descubrir. Uno de ellos es la Casa de los Dragones. Las primeras casas chorizo de Buenos Aires tenían techos muy altos y detalles en la fachada que se pedían por catálogo. Es por eso que muchas tienen cresterías, molduras, y otros elementos parecidos. Pero hay varias de estas casas que rompían de manera muy original con la regla. La Casa de los Dragones, como su nombre lo indica, tiene diseños de alas, patas, y cuerpos de dragones en su fachada, pilares, y hasta en las barandas de los balcones. Después de varios años de abandono, fue restaurada en el 2013 y reconvertida en galería de arte.

San Telmo is the most bohemian and curious neighborhood in Buenos Aires. The special feeling of this place is a must-see for all the tourists, even those who live in the city. Lots of secrets can be seen by the trained eye. The so-called Casas-Chorizo (translated: “saussage-houses” because of the disposition of the rooms and the main public hall). The details of the facade were in most cases very similar because the owners chose them from a catalogue of designs. But there was some houses that skipped the rules. The House of Dragons is one of those. The designs inside and outside the building are based on complete and segmented dragons (wings, feet, etc). After several years abandoned, the house was reopened to the public as a gallery of art and it was completely revitalized.
