Argentina's most famous comic strip character - and philosopher!

Present in tours

Mafalda (Defensa and Chile) is one of Argentina's most popular comic strip characters. You can find her sitting on a bench with her friends Susanita and Manolo.

Created by Quino, initially for advertisements for a brand of electrodomestic products, and later for the magazine Primera Plana, she came to represent the ethical and philisophical anxieties of Argentina's educated middle class. Italian semiologist Umberto Eco once said that Mafalda was "important for understanding Argentina."
