           * The Subte (Underground) service in Buenos Aires is the oldest in Latin America, which started working in 1913. The A line was the first one, and the original wooden trains were retired in 2013, after almost 100 years of continuous service, to be replaced with brand-new ones.

There are some thematic stations, with nice decorations which remind historical events.

 Recommendation:​ Take your time and enjoy local coffee. Ask for a cortado (coffee plus very little milk, just to change the colour) with medialunas (moon-shaped sweet croissants).
