See, explore and feel the magic of the Feria Mataderos, one of the most cultural and exciting tours in Buenos Aires.
This tour gives you a full day of tradition, music, new food and drink - all without leaving the city!
Our tour begins around midday at our offices in the heart of San Telmo, from where we’ll make our way over to the feria. You’ll then have some free time to admire the unique arches and architecture of the market, and then visit the Museo Criollo de los Corrales. This museum displays a huge number of rural objects which give you a glimpse into how the gauchos lived in the pampas, such as clothes, tools and other everyday objects. We’ll also see how Argentina became one of the world’s leading meat exporters: things like traditional knives, weapons, carts, animals and rural paintings are all on show. As well as this, you’ll have the chance to see weapons, knives, carts, animals, paintings and even the famous ‘quincho’ or ‘ranch’: the dining room of the gauchos. We’ll all then head over to the market stalls for a spot of lunch.
You’ll have the chance to try many traditional Argentine foods such as tamales (ground, spiced meat wrapped in a corn leaf), humita en chala (much like tamales but corn and cheese replace the meat), locros (a typical Argentine stew) and the famous empanadas. And everything is served with a delicious wine, of course.
After lunch there will be some more time to explore the market stalls selling things like sweets, musical instruments, rope, accessories, furniture and everyday objects, before our tour comes to a close.
An authentic Argentinian experience 10/07/2016It takes an hour or so from the city center, but it's worth the trip. Lots of products handmade by local craftsmen at reasonable prices, gigantic "parrillas/barbecues" in the streets, very few tourists, an authentic Argentinian experience!Reviewed by TB AWESOME! 30/06/2016Everything was AWESOME! The music, the dancing and the gauchos were incredible. Watching the horses and riders down the street was really good.. and the food was great!
Thumbs up for this very different BA neighborhood!!!Reviewed by Steve C Mataderos Fair was great! 30/06/2016Far from the main touristic area in Buenos Aires, the atmosphere was wonderful! Not that many tourists, live music and lots of artisanal products to look at . And most important of all, lots of places to get great meat!Reviewed by Chris
