The area
Neighbourhood: San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.

Such a fun area to explore. We found a of character statues on Defensa after leaving San Telmo market. At each statue there is a plaque with the distance to the next statue. There were already a lot of others taking photos at 10:30am on a Friday.

The start of a walk from St Telmo, around the area and across to the harbour area, tracking down various street statues of cartoon characters ending up at the Museum of Humour. Don’t forget to take a photo of the map on the street sign adjacent to Malfida on the bench, showing the location of each character.

As not being a Portenos or from Argentina I have no clue what al the fuss is about. There was a long line with mostly grown-ups for the bench with the Malfida figure. Must say that the setting is cute for a photo, but seeing the line she must be very famous also...

and lead you to the comedy museum.

Do check the map near the shop where to go! We got to about 12 and didn't go anymore as it was about 2K walk to get there. I remember that one of the signs was not obvious.

The comedy museum is in the newer docks district.

At historical San Telmo, tribute is paid to the masters of humor and their creations at Paseo de la Historieta, a sculpture tour around the streets of one of the most ancient neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. The idea began with a sculpture of Malfalda and, after its success nine more sculptures were added - Isidoro Cañones, Larguirucho, Matías, el Loco Chávez, Clemente, Chicas Divito, don Fulgencio, Patoruzú and Gaturro.

We would not have known of this attraction if we had not seen the statues.

Everyone seems to get in touch with their inner child when they see Mafalda and friends, all vintage Latin American cartoon characters. The Paseo de la Historieta begins in San Telmo and crosses the city all the way to Puerto Madero, ending at the city's Humor Museum. Take a photo of the map in San Telmo, then follow the trail until you've found everyone, enjoying all the photo opps along the way.

A characteristic place to visit while visiting San Telmo, this walkaway of statues and drawings are a good activity if you are aware of some of Latin America´s cartoon culture. Lots of statue and photo opportunities around, its a perfect place to visit during sunny days and week days, when the galore of people of Buenos Aires are still working. A must if you are in the area.
