Allowed 20 minutes as part of a city tour we managed to walk all round the interior of the beautiful Basilica. Rather more ornate than catholic churches in Western parts of Europe it is more like those in Italian cities or,say, Malta. Lovely stained glass...More

combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied

You have to connect with the line to Plaza San Martin and then walk a few blocks. If you like walk you can go walking its about half an hour max. I dis it, its a nice walk.”
