Book this cultural city tour to Feria de Mataderos for the opportunity to get off the beaten tourist track in Buenos Aires and get an authentic experience at the Mataderos Fair in the traditional neighbourhood of Mataderos, located on the western border of Buenos Aires. The name means ‘‘slaughterhouses’’ as the area was initially a livestock market and is where the countryside begins, making it a hub for rural commerce, and the main stop for Gauchos living within the city of Buenos Aires.

On this cultural Feria de Mataderos City Tour, your bilingual guide will take you to explore one of the most popular traditions in Argentina. The Fair has become a very important part of Buenos Aires commerce over its 30 years of existence and it aims at demonstrating the fusion of Argentinean cultures. This popular fair is attended by nearly 5,000 people every Sunday in Buenos Aires. The Feria de Mataderos is held in front of the "Mercado Nacional de Hacienda", an important Argentine national monument. The Market is divided into three areas: a traditional handicrafts area selling, mates; hats; leather items and musical instruments. There is an area showcasing artistic folklore performances, Tango and other music. There is also the Gaucho area where they perform their impressive skills and cowboy tricks and you are able to get up close to the horses. The Feria de Mataderos City Tour also includes a visit to the interesting Museo Criollo de los Corrales and a short city tour through the very traditional streets of the Mataderos neighbourhood.

Book this authentic and exciting Feria de Mataderos City Tour and experience a unique, cultural Gaucho show along with an informative city and museum tour of this historical neighbourhood. Add to your vacation in Buenos Aires by exploring a unique and very Argentine event and gain an insight into the culture of country life, off the regular tourist trail!
