This historical neighborhood, in which visitors will find the “Torre de los Ingleses” or “Tower of the English,” in front of the Retiro train station and the bus terminal. Undoubtedly the most beautiful part of the neighborhood is the Plaza San Martín, one of the most elegant zones of the city. By subway or bus, it is a ten minute trip to the “microcentro” downtown area.
