This is probably the neatest blast-to-the-past subway ride you’ll ever take. The A Line was the first subte line built here. It still uses rollicking old wooden trains. Jump on, and feel the breeze blowing through its open windows when it’s warm.

I master the subways and life in the city is good. The maps have the subway lines on them. In Portugal the maps do not. So if maps are marked it's great. Go enjoy the oldest subway in South America.

Riding the subway (Subte) in Buenos Aires is easy and convenient. Our B&B host provided us with prepaid cards to use as we travelled. Besides the efficiency in travel, the artwork in some of the stations is worth a look.

Not only does the subway (subte) get you from one place to the other easily, it offers artwork and ambiance as you travel. I found the mosaics on the walls interesting and beautifully done.

I caught the old wooden cars and it was very very cool. I'm sorry to hear that they have been replaced. But the metro ("subte?") is not a tourist attraction, it's a transportation system, so I get it.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
