(3.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Find yourself in the crossfire of some rapid banter at Estatua de Olmedo y Portales. Unveiled in 2011, this art installation immortalizes two comedians that starred in the popular Argentinian TV sitcom "No toca botón" that reigned in the 1980s. Actors Javier Portales and Alberto Olmedo are depicted sitting on either end of a couch deep in conversation at the corner of a busy intersection, with just enough space in between for tourists to sit and get in on the laughs. You'll likely want your camera for this picture-perfect photo opportunity.

  • The statue represents the two characters, seated on a bench, laughing. A space between the two leaves so visitors can sit down and take a picture between the two iconic artists.

  • It was an actorazo! They made us happy! The statue isn't bad. It would have to keep it a little more. But it is worth!

  • The streets of Buenos Aires has many statues, but each has its history. It's very interesting to know.
