Monumento A Carlos Gardel, Buenos Aires

3.5
Watching over the gentrified pedestrian walkway at the heart of his former neighborhood, tango legend Carlos Gardel is immortalized in Monumento A Carlos Gardel. The French-born singer, songwriter, composer, and actor arrived in Argentina at the age of three in 1893. He grew up in the Abasto neighborhood and became known as the most prominent figure in the history of tango for his baritone voice and dramatically phrased lyrics. Today the statue in his memory stands just outside the Abasto Market among the streets where he grew up.

  • The statue is well preserved on your main structure but need maintenance on your base. Is in front of one of the entries of the Abasto Shopping Mall. The relevance of the figure of Gardel to the city of Buenos Aires, I think it's worth a visit.

  • There is much more than a set of statues of the heroes of the tango and the cantata, ideal for a good photo. Nice passage with a couple of restaurants and a souvenir shop.

  • The station has many acknowledgements for Carlos Gardel
  • It is very nice to see his murals. Although it is often cleaning and more at times peak. But it is very convenient to reach and exit from the slaughter

  • This station is very picturesque as it has several murals in honor of Gardel and shopping Abasto and it has columns painted in colors. The problem is that usually is a little dirty but has direct combination with the shopping.

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.
