Although the geographical conditions were always very adverse, they settled the famous "barrack" that were very humble constructions there where different products were stored, leathers etc.  was hardened

The area anegadiza where is this neighborhood that in fact receives their name from the mouth in which the waters of the Creek end in the River Plate, it impeded during a lot of time the establishment of neighbors' stable groups. Until principles of the XIX century the place was practically uninhabited, being among the years 1830 and 1852 when they began to settle Genoese families, being already built for then naval navy and store.

Given their great sensibility for the art, in the neighborhood singers have been born, musicians, poets and plastic artists, many of which have occupied outstanding places in the preference popular. 

This popular neighborhood has had an enormous diffusion through the work of two of its characterized neighbors, Benito Quinquela Martin and Juan of God Filiberto; the first one with their dedicated pictorial work almost in their entirety to the thematic boquense; the second with their immortal "Road" whose chords made know the picturesque corner well far from our frontiers.
