  • Sunday Market - Plaza Dorrego

    Buenos Aires Things to Do

    It is a bit of a misnomer to suggest the Sunday Flea Market in San Telmo is restricted to Plaza Dorrego. The 'Feria de San Pedro Telmo', to give it the full name, extends fully 15 blocks along Calle Defensa, almost to Plaza de Mayo. We were staying in San Telmo on Sunday, so it was only a short walk to the heart of the market at Plaza Dorrego....

    In a city that is maniacal about Tango, one has to wonder why there isn't more Gaucho influence. For those of you interested in Gaucho culture beyond eating the steaks they provide, the Feria Mataderos on Sundays (starting in April) is a great thing to do, even if it requires a bit of effort. A taxi ride costs about $12 US from the city center to...
