Barrio Sur

part of Buenos Aires south of Rivadavia

Fishburn and Hughes: "The southern district of Buenos Aires, the oldest and now unfashionable side of the city, in the area surrounding Plaza Constitución. Situated at the mouth of the River Plate, it was subject to floods and epidemics causing the wealthy to leave for the higher ground of what is now known as Barrio Norte." (23)
