    The promenade of the cartoon is a journey that starts in San Telmo and ends in Puerto Madero. During this tour you will see statues and murals with classic characters of bullets Argentine as Patoruzú, Isidoro Cañones, Clement, I Matias and Gaturro among many others. Each figure that is there will be a map of the sector indicate the route and the figures in each place. Ideal to Miss along the way. I recommend making this journey with sunlight to better appreciate the ride.

    Nice place, worth going during the week because every Sunday is very crowded because there's a fair on Sundays.

    Historical place, the ride of the cartoons of the popular cartoonist Quino, creator of the popular Mafalda and other characters to life. The tour shows sculptures of the characters with their names, ideal for walks in family, couple and only. Place enough tour, especially on weekends
