We don't really know the comic, but came across a large line of people as we were walking down Defensa Street on a Sunday afternoon. We didn't wait in line, but it looked like a reasonable long wait to get a picture with her. We learned a bit more about Mafalda, who is a beloved comic character, but not one that I was familiar with. It was fun to see the statue, and maybe take a photo if you're there at a less crowded time, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it unless you're specifically a fan.

Drop off at San Telmo metro station or bus city tour stop. In 5 minutes you reach her!
Take a fun picture and a gadget, if you like...
One of the best characters ever!

If one does not know who/what Mafalda is/was, this is a complete waste of time. Could not believe that adults were seemingly excited to have their pictures taken next to this sad little troll.

There she is sitting on a bench outside a cafe in the heart of San Telmo. Sometimes there are crowds queuing to have a photo, but sometimes there is nobody there and you can just sit with her and tell her anything. On market day you will find her everywhere, t-shirts to mugs and a whole lot more and the children love her.

An unmissable spot for those who love Quino’s characters but also as one of the most recognizable symbols of BA. Lots of memorabilia in nearby shop.

I guess this attraction makes sense if you know who Mafalda is. I personally love her and have since I was a child so for me was a dream come true to see her in Buenos Aires. We went on a Monday so no many ppl around but I know on weekends gets very busy and you have to line up to get a photo!

Whilst I am not familiar with the comic it was great to see all the characters along the street. In fact, you can get just as much fun watching other people's reactions!

I love Mafalda! However, I'd never stand on line, for more than 1 hour, to take a quick picture, and get out quickly. If you go, try to either go early, or definitely not on weekends. It's tremendously crowded. But, do check out the street market where this is. It's worth it.
