Description

From our office you can go directly to the antiques fair San Pedro Telmo. Since 1970, the fair has been held every Sunday in Plaza Dorrego and Defensa Street, which has become a pedestrian area especially for this day. About 10,000 people, many of whom are tourists from all over the world, visit the 270 stands of this famous fair every Sunday. You can find almost everything from antique furniture to traditional Argentinean crafts, antiques, clothing and great leather goods. Enjoy the tango orchestra with its dancers, living statues and other street performers that make this fair a great place. You will also visit the "Mercado de San Telmo" (market of San Telmo), ideal for those who want to buy souvenirs and visit unique shops

After two hours of enjoying the charm of the San Telmo Antiques Fair, you will drive to the southwestern part of the city, where the Mataderos Fair began 30 years ago and still functions successfully as a festival of "gaucho culture". It has 3 basic areas that are always present, along with a dish, traditional crafts, art festivals and gaucho skills. Every Sunday there are various activities such as presentations, exhibitions and workshops. Incredible craftsmen have over 300 stands at the fair, selling traditional "gaucho" crafts such as mates, ponchos, blankets, musical instruments, leather goods and silver jewellery.

You will have some time to visit the "Museo Criollo de los Corrales". This museum in rural style gives us an impression of how the gauchos live in the pampas. You can discover clothes, tools and other everyday objects. It will also show you how the livestock industry in Argentina developed until the country became one of the most important exporters and one of the world's leading companies in the meat industry. You will see weapons, knives, carriages, animals and amazing paintings.

The tour includes a great lunch in this place full of delicious food! Both handicrafts and regional foods (jams, liqueurs, cheese and "alfajores") can be bought at better prices than in the tourist shops of the city

The fair represents a colourful mixture of traditions, handicrafts, music, dance and art. There are also lectures, exhibitions, traditional games for children and adults. At the Mataderos Fair you can watch the locals and visitors dance folk dances accompanied by live musicians

At about 17 o'clock your great tour is then over
