Monumento A Carlos Gardel, Buenos Aires

(3.9/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • When in Buenos Aires, an amusing and interactive must, to honour the great beginnings and contributions to Tango that we enjoy today and through time. 
  • The best voice of the tango is homeajeada in the neighborhood of el Abasto. Also be put together a cute ride dedicated to Gardel

  • It is very good, but then so is the passage in which it is located, behind the Mercado de Abasto (modern today Shopping). But it also is giving a tour of the neighborhood and even come to the House of the singer. All very Tango.

  • Excellent show, the dancers and the music are fantastic. But get the ticket with the dinner, as the dinner is not really worth it, the food quality isn't that good compared to what you pay. With dinner the show was 140 US Dollars and I think without dinner was 90-100
  • Overpriced, good music, average dancers, poor food.
  • El show increíble, un despliegue fabuloso. Un orgullo nacional
  • one of the better tango shows in buenos aires. huge production
  • Excellent tango show with top notch live orchestra. Dinner was average but overall highly enjoyable.
