As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos

Creo que no hay souvenirs que se vendan por allí, pero seguramente encontrará alguna figura de Mafalda, por ejemplo en la Galería Alvear, sobre la Av. Alvear en Recoleta o en la calle Florida, en Retiro.
