“Regular line of Subway”
15 Sep 2016
“Enjoyed all Buenos Aires subways”
This is probably the neatest blast-to-the-past subway ride you’ll ever take. The A Line was the first subte line built here. It still uses rollicking old wooden trains. Jump on, and feel the breeze blowing through its open windows when it’s warm.

I loved my ride on the Linea A, but it's now closed for a couple of months so the city government can replace the old cars with new ones built in China. I hope the beautiful old cars end up in museums -- there are...More

I master the subways and life in the city is good. The maps have the subway lines on them. In Portugal the maps do not. So if maps are marked it's great. Go enjoy the oldest subway in South America.

Riding the subway (Subte) in Buenos Aires is easy and convenient. Our B&B host provided us with prepaid cards to use as we travelled. Besides the efficiency in travel, the artwork in some of the stations is worth a look.

We were disappointed to be told that the old wooden carriages on subte line A had been taken out, as riding in one on a previous visit had been a real experience. However, the new carriages are super-new, air conditioned, with a hint of deoderiser:...More

Buenos Aires first underground line deserves a visit. Even if you don't use the line to get from one place to another the stations date from early XX century and present a must see while in Buenos Aires city.

Not only does the subway (subte) get you from one place to the other easily, it offers artwork and ambiance as you travel. I found the mosaics on the walls interesting and beautifully done.

As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,
Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
