  Choosing to poes at the San Martin statue
by mtncorg

Probably the most beautiful downtown plaza in BsAs, this plaza was an earlier slave market and military quartert. Beautiful leafy trees predominate now with a glorious monument to San Martin on the northwest side opposite the magnificent Palacio Sna Martin ? the Foreign Ministry building. The plaza is surrounded with grand palaces of bygone landed barons ? now with new tenants: Palacio San Martin, Circulo Militar, the National Park building and the Marriot Plaza hotel. The Edificio Kavanagh towers above the southern edge and the Malvinas/Falkland Monument is on the east side.

Address: Retiro district
