“Nice,”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

Went on a sunday and found it crowded but worth while, just be careful on the adjoining streets, people can sprayyou with what you think is water and try to take your things,
Just keep your belongings close and enjoy the san telmo market.
There was a line to be able to take the pic but it was funandcworth while!

“Cute statue, a quick stop”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Sometimes this statue has a line of people waiting to take a picture with it! I went on a semi-rainy day and was able to take a few pictures without a line. Be wary though, the area seemed a little sketchy as it got darker.

“Mafalda is the heart of Buenos Aires”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

If you are passing by, it is worth to take a photo of this iconic cartoon statue that had represented the social concerns of Argentina.

“Just a quick stop for a picture”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

It is not worth visiting unless you happen to pass by it while walking through the market hosted on sundays in San Telmo, or you've done the guided visit at El Zanjon de Granada (which is less than a block away and VERY worth seeing).
