This square has an open air market (feria) that has diverse and interesting crafts in leather, metal, wood, glass, etc. Bought souvenirs and presents. Also, there is a 200 year old tree very dear to argentinians. The church (Nuestra Señora del Pilar) is also interesting...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!

Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
