Plaza Dorrego, Buenos Aires

4.1
Placed in the heart of the city, Plaza Dorrego serves as a square boasting a long history and a popular present-day scene. When you go, look for historical buildings erected during the 19th century when the area served as the main residential neighborhood. The old architecture blends with new structures hosting cafes, bars, pubs, and numerous antique stores. If you hear lively music, check for musical and dance exhibitions like tango displays. If possible, see if you can catch the market that takes place each Sunday when vendors offer antiques, crafts, jewelery, period clothing, and much more.

  • Nice for hanging out or eating as well as tourists.
  • Very nice place. On weekends they have little shops opened in the plaza selling all kinds of items.
  • Very fun place to have a snack and watch a couple perform tango every 20 minutes. Audience is allowed to request a dance! Very fun, open air Plaza, lots of fun tourist shops that offer Argentine made items only.
  • Beautiful location. I enjoyed my time site-seeing.
  • In this place you can find a lot original things, about leather, wood, books, food, glass, old things, popular music, street dance and differents curiosity. I'm​ not sure it is expensive but I recommend you go because you are going to enjoy that beautiful handmade things and you can know a tipycal street market in Argentina

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
