Estatua de Olmedo y Portales, Buenos Aires

(3.6/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • a beautiful statue located on the street running that unfortunately sometimes suffer acts of vandalism and break it or paint. It is to draw a picture of pass if in the area and nothing more.

  • The idea was good, populated with statues of our best comedians Corrientes Street. Unfortunately the vandalism that characterizes us has left its mark in different plants... But it still allows the nice souvenir photo.
