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.

  • On Saturdays, the spacious square next to the Recoleta cemetery WINS countless tents of a craft fair well busy. Several phone booths in London and a lot of people imitating the walking that way.

  • Located in the centre of Shelis, a famous chino in the park, there are statues and stalls of trafficking selling artwork in the garden of the city of France.

  • This place is full of squares, it's nice to go for a walk, but they are not very well cared for. Worth more by museums and other attractions.

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.
