My favourite videos of Buenos Aires recently upgraded suburb “The Retiro”

The name Retiro means ‘the Retreat’, the name of a country house owned by a Spanish governor in the late 17th century. Today, Retiro is, for most people, synonymous with two newly renovated train stations and the principal bus station in Buenos Aires.

Mitre is a British-built station (look out for plaques of the British material suppliers) dating back to 1915 and was inspired by London’s Crystal Palace. Between the crowds you can glimpse its rebuilt glory. Every morning thousands of commuters from the wealthy northern suburbs descend on Retiro on their way to work.
