  • Very pretty fair, to buy gifts eat a choripan, sweet milk, see bailar tango, buy antiques, strolling along with many tourists, is a mix of Argentine history. You can take a photo with Gardel see a MIME, a magic show, take a good wine, in order to pass it very well and if venis every now and then I recommend you pass to see again the fair because I visit it many times and always have new things, as that will renew, I recommend the walk, obvious as everywhere look after belongings I never me nothing happened but is a lot the people who come and there is good avoid bad moments.
