Review of Mafalda Statue

Mafalda Statue
Ranked #41 of 795 things to do in Buenos Aires
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Mafalda is sitting on a bench at the corner of Chile/Defensa in the San Telmo neighbourhood. You can stop by for a picture with this famous Argentinian cartoon character, before continuing with your sightseeing. I was there on a Tuesday afternoon and didn't have to wait very long before taking my picture with her as there were only a few people gathered around her. Located within walking distance to the bridge, Puente de la Mujer, and the two areas can easily be explored on the same day.

During my visit, at my suprise, I could see that the whole statue had been painted in green... All of it, face included! So she looked more like Hulk than Mafalda.... and actually, why would Mafalda wear a green dress at the first place?

Mafaldas statue is a must! I mean if u are in Buenos Aires you have to go, in San Telmo if you go on a sunday is very difficult to take a picture with it but on the other days of the weak its easy to take a pic.

While Mafalda is well worth visiting, the address is not correct. The real Mafalda sits Chile corner Defensa. Since this happened twice to us, we recommend to check every supposed address. It could save you a lot of time.
