Monumento A Carlos Gardel, Buenos Aires

3.5
#394 of 896 in Things to do in Buenos Aires
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.

    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 machines to load the card CLIMBS were not working during the 4 days I was in the neighborhood. I had to go to the station Medrano to load or ask the cashier.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires
