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.

    I love this square ... her Sundays occurs the famous Feria de San Telmo, but on other days (I went on a Friday) she gets crammed full of tables with umbrellas and is surrounded by many restaurants, cafes and bars.

    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.
