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.

  • Always iconic was the sale of bread stuffed in square France. To come together to take Matt to the Sun, accompanied by Argentine music of an imitator that decades ago accompanies us on weekends. The fair is one of the most iconic of the city and the area connects directly with the Recoleta Mall and cinemas.
