Plaza Francia, Buenos Aires

In the hip Recoleta neighborhood, and at the end of Avenue Quintana, sits Plaza Francia, home to a long-standing artisan craft market. The market overtakes the landscaped park every weekend, while during the week locals use the park for leisure. Come to admire the views all around the square, watch various casual games and sports taking place, and see the notable church. If you’re here on a market day, take advantage of this shopping opportunity; you'll find items like pendants, leather goods, knitted wool products, and pins, all created with the particular artist’s personal flair. Make Plaza Francia part of your personalized Buenos Aires itinerary using our Buenos Aires road trip planning app .

  • Is you can pass an exceptional day ride in France Plaza, the quality of many craftsmen is spectacular, if you get tired of shopping, you can visit the cemetery of la Recoleta, with its wonderful monuments, there are also many bars and restaurants to eat practically of all at very good prices. No doubt I'll be back.

  • Lindo lugar para pasar el rato, se puede ver la feria, está cerca del museo de arte, de la facultad de abogacía, buenos aires design...
  • Great weekend flea market but be very aware of pickpockets, do not leave purse or backpack unattended
  • A must in Buenos Aires. Walk around and don't forget to visit Recoleta's grave yard. There are multiple things to do around here. Visit the Museum of fine arts just crossing Libertador Av. Also go to the Cafe La Biela and the small church next to the Centro Cultural Recoleta. Inside this visit the Prohibido No tocar (Forbidden not to touch) Museum. Great for kids, and not so kids.
