(3.6/5 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. A visit to Estatua de Olmedo y Portales represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Buenos Aires vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • The classic photo taken with the statue of Olmedo y Portales has become tourist tradition of the city. Almost a postcard!

  • Walk for locals, who know who were actors and can enjoy reminding them and their performances.

  • One of the beautiful statues in the streets of Buenos Aires and Corrientes Avenue, in specific, there are dozens of them and each one carries its history. It's worth some research to learn more about these great characters from the streets.
