And plenty of people stop and take their photo with here at this spot. It's actually pretty cool! We stumbled upon it while walking back from La Boca - walk around and discover things!

Good for Mafalda lovers, if you wanna have a picture with her and her friends in San Telmo. Next to the statue is a tinny gift store with some stuff form Quino.

A cute statue that bears a striking resemblance to Lucy in Peanuts. An Argentine comic character that has little meaning to an American.

There are several characters from Mafalda on the street corner, but you need patience to take a picture, as many people are normally in a line looking for the perfect snap.

No lines at the Mafalda in La Boca! She's sitting on the bench near Paseo Internacional at the northwest corner of Dr. del Valle Iberlucea and Gral. Gregorio Aráoz de Lamadrid.

Mafalda is really popular locally and there was a huge queue of people lining up just to have a photo with this small statue.

There was a line of about ~5/10 minutes to take a picture with the statue. If you're passing by the market (which you totally should!) worth it to come and take the picture!

Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
