  • Be prepared to walk a bit while looking for statues of famous comic book characters. A good thing was able to explore the streets of San Telmo that otherwise would not be in our roadmap. Some of the statues are not, unfortunately, very well preserved, but the joke of "treasure hunt" was fun and took several pictures with Mafalda, Manolito, Susanita y Isidoro Cañones (El Playboy), Larguirucho, Don Fulgentius, Clement (fanatic football), Las Chicas Divito, Patoruzú (Tehuelche Cacique and), Patoruzito and Isidorito y el Gaturro. As the passage was interrupted by works in Puerto Madero did not follow, but like a lot of walking.

  • This time I did travel from Puerto Madero, where are my favorite comic book characters: El Inodoro Pereyra and his dog the Mendieta. The sculptures are very well-kept and are already part of the landscape of the city.

  • A somewhat forgotten part of argentine culture, you can search and enjoy the rich and vast history of rioplatense comic strips.
  • This is a very busy street, particularly on weekends, when two important street markets take place --the farmers' market on Saturdays, and the flea market (Feria de San Telmo) on Sundays. Paseo de la Historieta is at the corner of Chile and Defensa streets and is home to several prominent cartoon characters of the Argentinian press, mainly the reknown Mafalda, the creation of Joaquín Salvador Lavado (a.k.a. Kino). On these corner anyone can sit on a bench with Mafalda, Susanita and Manolito and have his/her picture taken. Why this specific corner? Mafalda's creator/father used to live in the apartment building there.
  • Well...it's Classic...Area and Historic Boulevard...located in San Telmo... Neiborhood* it's really Worthy..
  • Very interesting and educational.
  • One of the most charmoss in the city. Suggest going on a weekday and then return to the fair of San Telmo. So you avoid the queue to take the picture with Mafalda and her friends, podr explore the market and galleries, and can enjoy the fair over the weekend. Careful with purses and pockets. There's a lot of pickpocket/pickpockets in this region.
