A vast array of stalls, where you can easily come across artists. Don't miss out!
Any Sunday is a good day to visit Dorrego Square, as it embodies the never-ending festive, eclectic atmosphere of the San Telmo Festival. All different types of stalls line the roads from the centre of the square, buzzing with the sounds of people passing by and merchants selling their wares. The loudest are typically those at travelling stalls, selling hot empanadas and mate. The stalls play the lead role in this festival, either set up outside concrete establishments, or set up in the middle of the street. Due to the whimsical variety of items sold, it’s better to go and have a look round, instead of looking for a particular item. The stalls bring colour and life to this popular neighbourhood, providing a unique shopping experience. The mixture of merchants and artists makes it hard not to stop every few steps to look at something new. Street musicians, tango dancers, mimes and street actors never fail to surprise passers-by, and you never know what you might find round the next corner.
