Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

The Subte (Subterráneos de Buenos Aires) was opened in 1913 as the world's 12th metro system and the first in South America. Its stations and trains still preserve a good deal of the charm of the 'good old times'.

The stations in Argentina's capital are almost free of advertising, but instead contain a large number of murals.
