El Zanjón de Granados
In 1871, a yellow fever epidemic caused the aristocrats ofSan Telmo to flee. Their homes becameconventillos , where immigrants lived and worked. El Zanjón de Granados was excavated, and, with its different levels, is a superb example of such a residence. A fascinating place to visit.
