Plaza Fuerza Aérea, Buenos Aires


Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires has many monumental and historical plazas and buildings. The Plaza Fuerza Aérea Argentina (or Plaza Británica) is located in front of the Retiro Railway Station.  The Torre Monumental (also known as Torre de los Ingleses) is located on the center of the plaza.

Like the old and current names of the plaza and monument indicate, the troubled history of Argentina and Britain has left there marks on the names of the landmarks as well.

I took this picture through the window from the top floor of hotel Sheraton in Retiro.
