Monumento A Carlos Gardel, Buenos Aires
(3.9/5 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 bronze sculpture that pays homage to the Morocho del Abasto is located at the corner of pasaje Carlos Gardel and Anchorena Street, opposite the Abasto Shopping, of the District of the same name, where grew up and is developing as an artist and that became legend, after his tragic split of this land. There it is in one of their poses more classic and well known: dressed, idly and combed the hair gel. Also in this pedestrian passage with benches and lamps that illuminate the Zorzal Criollo, there are statues of other popular artists Tango that accompany it as: Tita Merello, del flaco Goyeneche, Anìbal Troilo and Piazzola, among others, ideal for taking pictures with them. This place is a walk forced in who visit Buenos Aires.

  • Stay right next to the Abasto Shopping Mall, one way out of the mall right in front of the statue. Is a picture and a walk on the street of the same name and no more for the moment.

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

  • 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.
