It's worth going to San Telmo to take the picture. You'd be surprised. Many people wait in line to take a picture with her so try to go early in the morning. There's other characters in the neighboring streets.

Fun thing to do if you are a fan of the cartoon. Sit beside Mafalda and have your picture taken. All free but there is usually a line!
