Mafalda Statue, Buenos Aires

3.9
At first glance, you might not think there's much history behind Mafalda Statue, a model of an Argentinian cartoon character sitting on a park bench. However, the six-year-old girl--whose newspaper comic enjoyed massive popularity in Argentina between 1964 and 1973--represents the struggles of the country's middle class, explored through the eyes of a child. Her character, although troublesome in many ways, cared deeply about social issues, and wanted to make the world a better place. Today, you can take your picture with the charming statue, though you might have to wait more than half an hour in line.

  • Sitting down to take the picture with Mafalda is a national obligation. The mythical character Delas Quino (its creator) cartoons are available in San Telmo. His friends can be found in El Barrio and road to Puerto Madero.
