  • Construction fun praising famous Argentine actors, in fact it's a succession of locals who get to sit between the two figures and photographed.

  • Nice tribute to two great humor. Pretty well accomplished statues and well located in Corrientes Avenue. Without doubt an attraction to this street and a step forced for the tourists.
