Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 60+ 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.

  • This statue stands in an alley full of statues that Yes tango figures. Worth a shot, but it's no big deal.

  • The statue of Carlos Gardel is Carlos Gardel's Eve in front of the Shopping Abasto. In one corner we have a tango show and the other a store with objects linked to tango. In the passage there are several sculptures of other important characters in the history of the tango spread across your sidewalk, as well as a tribute to the "bandoneon". Very nice worth knowing.
