Plaza Francia is, as Argentineans would say, " imperdible," which means should not be missed. . The craft fair, the street musicians, typical pastry sellers and people just enjoying the grounds make for a very "local weekend experience." there is great energy and nice typical...More

Today we visit Plaza Francia! Nice place with lots of merchants with authentic leather stuff, jewelry, food, arts and music. The Feria is every Sunday, and it's a good way to enjoy like a local!

This is a park in Recoleta, just outside the cemetery and the church. On Saturdays and Sundays, they have a wonderful craft fair, with many stands filled with native and hand made articles of all sorts.
