Tango is not just a dance... it is a lifestyle... it is distinctive, timeless and everlasting... It spans through decades, continents, nations and people! Tango is a unique culture, rich with history, thrilling and controversial, passionate and mysterious... And with every single song, with every single dance it draws you to it stronger and stronger and makes you want to be part of it more and more... Writer Jorge Luis Borges defined it as "... the most outspread Argentinian production, which has insolently proclaimed the Argentinian name across the face of the Earth. It is evident that we must find out about its origins and prescribe a genealogy where neither the deified legend nor the definite truth be missing." In Buenos Aires – the city of it’s origin, you can explore its history, its places and mentors, something of the magic and the mistery of tango, as singular as inexplicable.
There are only 32 km. between Tigre and the obelisc. This spot in the North of the Province of Buenos Aires is undoubtedly a piece of living history Colonization started here with the second foundation of Buenos Aires by Don Juan de Garay. A document dated 24th October, 1580 records the distribution of the land. The name Tigre is derived from an old story of jaguar hunters. It is said that a couple of very famous and virtuous hunters used to live in the region. With the vertiginous passing of time, these lands were populated by farmers who lived with their families upon the products they grew and harvested. In 1611, the Cabildo asked the for a report on land farming and appointed 15 farmers residing in the area to cultivate wheat, thus giving origin to the village, which grew and became established both socially and economically. Today, the City of Tigre is a destination neither foreigners nor local people should miss. But beyond all activities, its main attraction is the Fruit Market, a different, almost magical world. The port has three inner docks. Daily catamaran excursions leave from one of them to the Delta. The central docks concentrate the grocer's boats, which supply the inhabitants of the islands with the most varied products. In the last harbour, the timbering boats full of poplar and willow logs from the forested islands of the Delta are unloaded. The port of Tigre lodges the open market with streets full of the colors of rustic fabric, furniture and accesories made in cane and willow, delicious jams and honey, brilliant flowers, and of course, all the variety of native fruit co-existing in absolute harmony
