  • Cartoon walk is a must-see in Buenos Aires, unfortunately I expected more! Of course we arrived (19 persons of all ages) and have the "memory picture" on the bench with the characters of Quino we love so much, but in general our comment was: both to make it just that? We went to the 'official' shop where 2 vendors have very little patience and be noticed tired or perhaps annoying that were asking them the price of the items that interested us (by the way: is not cheap). Very poor attention to tourists, or rather: very bad attitude toward customers. I recommend go? Of course! Especially those who, like me, are fans of cartoons, but if not for the "famous photograph", really not worth. In the area there are at several corners other statues, unknown to us, but sympathetic all.

  • I did the whole tour with a bike that I borrowed with the city. And it's worth a lot to shame! A very sweet gave me a map with the location of each sculpture but I think you can get at any newsstand. Just do not know what the distribution is free. The loan of bikes are really cool and you can get them without a lot of red tape showing the your Passport.

  • Created in 2012, the Paseo de la Historieta begins between Chile with Defense, with your main character – Mafalda – and follows the streets of San Telmo and Puerto Madero. Among the characters are Mafalda, Isidore, Patoruzú, Clemente and Gaturro, Don Fulgencio, Patoruzú, etc. The ride ends at Avenida AV. Paseo Colón Esq. Moreno with Gaturro. You get all the locations of the statues easily. A good excuse for a different ride through the Argentine capital.

  • Well...it's Classic...Area and Historic Boulevard...located in San Telmo... Neiborhood* it's really Worthy..
  • Very interesting and educational.
  • Must for those who love comics! Go with comfortable shoes, because you're going to walk a lot. In each character statue, there is an indication for the next, so you can't lose. At the end of the course, you know the Museo del Humor, which features original Argentine artists and a lot of history of Latin America related to Comics and cartoons. The Museum closes relatively early (if I'm not mistaken, some 5:00 pm), so it's nice to do the maximum to ride home in the afternoon.

  • My cool place to learn. They recommended I go day but I think it is equally magical evening. The place has several cafes and themed restaurants that are totally worth visiting. It was one of my favorite places in buenos aires

  • It's nice to go, the negative is that the characters are very scattered and difficult to find them. The good news is that the San Telmo neighborhood is nice in itself to get to know.
