Owner description: Architectural landmarks in the city’s oldest neighborhood have been restored, and this revitalized area is distinctly artistic, with cafes, antique shops, cobblestone streets and lots of artists and dancers.

17 years ago the antiques fair occupied the square only but has now become a victim of its own fame and spreads for blocks in all areas selling the usual tourist tat that can be bought in other areas of the city. There are some gems selling retro clothes or hand painted tee shirts but for a less crowded experience try Barrio Norte

Had lots of people tell me to come here. Can't quite figure out why. I thought it was a bit dull, not much to do.

Weekend markets have lots of handcrafts and pre loved goods. Lots of bars and cafes in side streets, better priced. Tango, drums, guitars create a great atmosphere

What an unique part of Buenos Aires, with so much history, and so much to see and take pictures of. Oldest barrio in BA, cobblestone streets, tango dancers, etc.

I found this to be a flea market with questionable quality. The prices were high and probably a lot of fakes are on display. The real antiques are located in the shops and the prices prohibitive.
