On the corner of Avenida Directorio and Murguiondo a mural announces, “Republica de Mataderos – Bienvenidos.” Republic of Mataderos – Welcome. This mural, for those entering the neighborhood from the east, beyond which lies the vast majority of Capital Federal, indicates to visitors that they are entering a place with an overwhelming sense of local pride, and that may, in fact, host some of the most vivid manifestations of historic and contemporary Argentine identity in the city.
