Formerly a separate settlement, it now belongs to the Greater La Plata urban conglomerate. Its name, (Spanish for "the [brick] ovens" or "the furnaces"), refers to the several brick factories that were located in the area at the end of the 19th century, and which supplied the bricks for many of the buildings in the nascent city of La Plata. The area was heavily settled by Italian immigrants, and became renowned for its many family orchards. The "barrio" still retains a distinct personality and atmosphere within La Plata.
In Los Hornos we can find the municipal cemetery, a protected local landmark, and the Parish St. Benjamin.
