Plaza Francia, Buenos Aires
(4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • After visiting the cemetery, comes well a rest in the plaza with some mates, game etc. You can also visit artisans to take some souvenir.

  • France square ride is very good for a sunny day with the family, can be picnics in areas of grass and on weekends there are craftsmen fairs with a beautiful variety of items for sale. There are also street vendors of food and beverages.
