Retiro

Favorite thing its a link...this place is a big square full of small buses stops that run to other neighbourhood and municipalities outside Capital (as locals known Buenos Aires city), places like Quilmes.. Avellaneda, Florencio Varela.... place at all touristic but absolutelly different to yhe capital ...Also it contains the main train station to the north and a omnibus main station ...buses run to every place in Argentina from here
you can get there using the subte line C ..be careful at evening because this isnt a suggestive place to walk

The French Embassy

Favorite thing It is located just oppositte the Brazilian Embassy. It was set to be bulldozed in the 1970's under the military junta, to expand the Avenida 9 de Julio. Residents complained bitterly. President Valery Giscard d'Estaing of France agreed, stood up to the generals, and said his diplomats would not move

Está ubicada justo frente a la embajada brasilera. Estuvo a punto de ser derribada, en los años 70 durante la dictadura militar, para ampliar la Avenida 9 de Julia, pero fue tanta la presión de la gente que el Presidente Francés, Valerie Giscard d'Estaing se plantó frente a los generales argentinos y les dijo que sus diplomáticos no se movían de ese edificio

The Brazilian Embassy

Favorite thing With a marvelous mansard roof, people say that this embassy is a nice copy of the Jacquemart-Andre Museum on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris. It was built in the 1920's by the Peredas, one of several Argentine families who visited Europe and made copies of the buildings they liked most when they returned.
Regrettably, the Brazilian ambassador's residence is only open to the public for tours on rare occasions.-

Se dice que este edificio es una buena copia del Jacquemart-Andre Museum ubicado en el Boulevard Haussmann en Paris. Fue construido en los años 20 por los Pereda, una de las muchas familias que visitaron Europa y a su regreso construyeron edificios que eran copia de los que más le habían gustado.-
Lamentablemente, la embajada brasilera está abierta al público para visitas guiadas, en raras ocasiones.-
