The historian Julio Riverend states that here settled around 150,000 Chinese between 1847 and 1874; but nowadays there is almost no Chinese people in here. The quarter is preserved thanks to the elderly Chinese still living here.

It is interesting to notice that the neighborhood still has the well-known Chinese Societies of Institution and Recreation, made up by small businesses like a casino, bar, inn and restaurant, all of them located on a first floor. In the quarter there is also a Chinese cinema showing movies in original versions, as well as a Chinese traditional pharmacy.
