Plaza Francia, Buenos Aires

(750+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Landmark
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. Plaza Francia is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Buenos Aires Edition.

  • One of the many beautiful parks of Buenos Aires. Good place to spend an afternoon. Many places to explore nearby including eateries
  • So many excellent artists and artisans together, always find something that catches your attention.
  • Nice place to go to spend your free day
  • Great place to spend a sunny afternoon. There are a lot of activities nearby: museum, souvenir shop, restaurants, bars, and cafeterias.
  • This is the area where you could find antic or souvenirs shopping. A humongous tree in the middle of the park which you must see. The cemetery of Recolate is not far away. We also visited the national art museum which is free and with lots of amazing collection of contemporary arts.
