Plaza Francia - City Plaza Buenos Aires - Argentina

Considered by many to be the heart of the classy Recoleta neighborhood, Plaza Francia's green sloping banks and massive old trees provide respite for tired legs. Surrounded by a wealth of tourist sights - including the adjacent Cementerio de Recoleta and the Basilica Nuestra Senora del Pilar - during the week, Plaza Francia is a perfect place to spread out on the grass and take a break. But on Sundays, the plaza itself turns into a tourist attraction. Booths selling handicrafts pack the sidewalks, bands play, comedians perform, and circus performers hang from trees. The green spaces are filled with Argentines drinking mate and chatting. Although it can get so crowded to be a bit claustrophobic, the positive atmosphere makes it easy to enjoy even with the crowds.
