Palermo Chico, (Little Palermo) one of the sub-divisions of the district is within walking distance of Palermo Gardens. It is considered the most chic and elegant neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Its mansions, similar to the most prominent European residences belonged to the wealthiest and most traditional families of Argentine society by the earliest 1900´s when Charles Thays, the French landscaper and architect had already designed the harmonic gardens of Palermo.
After several generations their scions have mostly sold these sumptuous houses (also known as "petit-hotels", according to the French voice). They are now occupied by foreign embassies, educational centers and museums. Several personalities, like stars, politicians and many tycoons own today these French style mansions. Yet, there are still some wealthy and conservative heiress living in the family´ old luxurious home.
The streets of Palermo Chico are shady. Enormous trees, like: ombués, tipas, jacarandaes, palos borrachos, gomeros, all regional trees, in accordance with Charles Thays urbanizations traces are planted alongside the curved shaped streets. These high and exuberant trees give some kind of privacy to the residences, also surrounded by tall and compact fences. However, the distinguished houses can be admired from outside the most of the times.
Alongside Libertador and Figueroa Alcorta Avenues there are luxurious and modern apartments, some of them recently built, according to the classic European style.
