Monument
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.

  • It is a beautiful work of art that tends to perpetuate two geniuses of humor. That we have given so much joy even in difficult times. One can get a fotito and save a beautiful memory of these Lords of humor. Step will serve for this new generation of young people, and know more than these idols un.poco.

  • A well deserved tribute to two great capocomicos of the Argentina. They have done several generations laugh. Pity that there is no respect for sculptures and tributes, and in many cases they end up damaged or destroyed.
