Assif Am-David (Israel):
The city of BA is a very pleasant and bustling city with much Neoclassical Eurpean style architecture. I don't know what reasons exactly might justify its inscription though. I would like to point out the Hispano-American Museum which exhibits colonial art in a beautiful colonial mansion as a worthwhile visit. La Boca, on the other hand, became so heavily commercialized it's almost unworthy of a visit.
