Following an already traditional routine, on Thursdays and Fridays the yard located behind the historical Cabildo gets crowded with stalls displaying handicrafts for sale.
Suddenly, it seemed hard to believe that we were still in downtown Buenos Aires
. The sunshine would percolate through the leaves; the atmosphere was spacious and relaxed; the walls were porous and historical.Everything for Everyone
Summer was coming to an end when we visited the market but the sun was falling above our heads in a way we would not believe it could still fall in Buenos Aires: warmly and pleasantly. And in spite of the 30 degrees Celsius that ruled over the city, we were about to buy a hand-knitted item. The products and the atmosphere cause visitors to slow down, even though they are in the very heart of microcentro
Hidden behind the white walls at the back of the Cabildo (today turned into a museum)
, this yard features red brick floors, forged iron bars and handicrafts stalls. It is an open secret: the perfect place to get away from it all.
