This is the most gaucho neighborhood in the city. Slaughterhouses owes its name to the meat slaughter establishments that were installed in the area at the end of the 19th century. When the neighborhood began to be populated with workers attracted by the new activity, it was called “the New Chicago”, alluding to the American city, center of the meat industry.

Slaughterhouses is today an industrial zone of low houses, with heavy traffic, and although the slaughterhouses and their pens were closed, there is reverence there the past in which the gauchos that grazed cattle and urban workers were mixed in its streets. This neighborhood is famous for “The Slaughterhouse Fair”.


Located in the southwest of the city, slaughterhouses are a bit far from the traditional tourist circuit, but well worth a visit.

The Slaughterhouse Fair:

This popular street market that is mounted every Sunday over 700 stalls in which gauchesca food and handicrafts and all kinds of Argentine handicrafts from the Pampas area are sold. Also I know they perform shows of dressage of foals, bows, horse runs, runs of “ring” and “guitar”, singing meetings and traditional dances.

The fair began in the 80s and gradually became a true classic of the neighborhood and today is also considered cultural heritage of the city. Their stalls are mounted in front of the old National Treasury Market (the place where cattle were brought for auction), every Sunday from 11 am to 8 pm (from April to December).
