San Nicolás, or as local know it; "El Micro Centro" (The Micro Center) is one of the most visited areas in The City of Buenos Aires and millions of people come to work here each morning. The name San Nicolás comes from the Church of San Nicolás built in 1773 on the corner of what is today the intersection between the avenues Carlos Pellegrini and Corrientes, and this was also the place where the Argentinean flag was first hoisted in Buenos Aires. When the Corrientes Avenue was widened, the church was removed, and all that remains to see today is a ingraving on the side of the "Obelisco" found in the "Plaza de la Republica" (Square of the Republic) remembering this historical spot of Buenos Aires.
Today there is a new church bearing the neighborhoods name. The chruch "San Nicolás de Bari" can be found on the Santa Fe Avenue, 1364.
It is very odd that any person living in Buenos Aires would refer to this as the San Nicolas area, but it is very diverse and has a large variety of stores and shops, and it is a unique experience walking through the sea of people that transit through here during rush hour. During the night the area is completely emptied of people, and there are not a lot of restaurants and bars open.
The 23rd of August is the Day of San Nicolas.
