  • We were told that this is the second oldest square in the city. However, on a wet, cold day there was little to see. Weekends see a lively antique market, street musicians and tango dancers.  more »
  • Piazza Dorago is one of the oldest squares in Buenos Aires. On Sundays, there is an antique market. I went on a weekday evening and could see an open-air tango.
