Mataderos is a barrio (neighborhood) in Buenos Aires, Argentina, belonging to the 9th comuna (district).  Located in the west end of the city, its name stem from the livestock market and slaughterhouses (the literal meaning of matadero).  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.  Mataderos features a lively commercial area along Eva PerĂ³n avenue, and the colorful Mataderos Fair on Sundays showcasing gaucho traditions, foods and crafts.  Block parties at the old marketplace on Avenida de los Corrales, sometimes featuring tango and milonga, are famous for their vibrancy.
