Venture westward in BA and you'll soon come upon the neighborhood of Mataderos, also known as the slaughterhouse district. Here, old rural customs meet urban commerce in a lively combination that's particularly expressive and entertaining.
Sundays in Mataderos feature a bustling weekly fair, where visitors can shop, dance, dine, and view some traditional gaucho (South American cowboy) skills on display. There are block parties and other events throughout the year, not to mention a variety of traditional bars and eateries, so don't limit your exposure to just one day. Overall it's a great cultural experience that you can safely file away under "time well spent."
