Barrio Italia

Barrio Italia

This barrio gets its name from the Italian immigrants who settled here in the early 1900s to work in the Girardi hat factory (now a cultural center). After a period of decline that lasted well into the 21st century, the neighborhood has been reborn over the last decade as a thriving design district, full of chic boutiques, art galleries and antique shops. Despite its newfound trendiness, Barrio Italia has managed to maintain a strong neighborhood identity, with most shops and cafes located inside historic casonas (mansions).
