As we went around the area, we spotted an unconventional statue that caught our attention immediately. Was it a dog? Or a mythological creature? What was it?
Clemente Square is located on the intersection of Brown Diagonal Street and Mitre Street. It is surrounded by many restaurants and pubs that invite visitors to come back and take photographs of the great protagonist at this place: brilliant Clemente.
Searching our memory and talking with old neighbors, we discovered the respect and love with which Caloi used to refer to his old Adrogué, the same city that over a decade ago raised a monument to honor his incredible career.
-And it was Clemente, the cartoonist’s most popular creation (which occupied the pages of Clarín newspaper ever since the 1970s until the author’s death in 2012), who was turned into a statue to immortalize its creator.
The best option to reach Adrogué is by train. General Roca Railway sets out at Constitución Square and heads for Alejandro Korn. The journey takes a little bit more than 20 minutes and gets past several famous districts from the suburbs, like Avellaneda, Lanús and Banfield.
However, there are other options. Buses 74, 79 or 160, also leaving from the City of Buenos Aires
, reach this place. The journey might take more than one hour, though.
Whatever option is chosen, Clemente, Caloi and Adrogué are certainly worth a visit, any day of the week.
Clemente’s photograph? A must …
