The architecture is beautiful. It is a must see. It’s full of upscale and elegant buildings but then you also see lots of homeless people sleeping on the streets. Very sad. I wouldn’t recommend walking around after dark. We didn’t feel very safe after dawn.

Retiro is the place where the bus terminal is located, so this is the first area many people (including myself) see when they arrive to Buenos Aires). It seems to be located right where the border between the rich and pretty part of the town...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
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
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
