#82 of 231 in Sightseeing in Buenos Aires
Monument Tourist Spot
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.

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.
