Feria de Mataderos

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Feria de Mataderos


Mataderos (Spanish for "slaughterhouses") is a barrio (neighbourhood) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is one of the three barrios that make up the Comuna 9, alongside Liniers and Parque Avellaneda. Located in the south-west end of the city, it takes its name from the livestock market and various slaughterhouses located within it.

For much of its history, the area was a meeting point between the city and the countryside, and thus became a hub for rural commerce, and the main stop for gauchos inside city limits. Many famous payadas (improvised lyric contests) took place in the neighborhood bars.
