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.

    I was curious to see Mafalda, Manolito, Susanita. The stories of Mafalda are excellent books very famous, and would say that people are big more than children.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
