A French tourist was mugged and then murdered in Plaza San Martin recently... be very careful here, especially at night.

“Nice view”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

There is nothing special about this park, only that it's on a sort of hill, so from the top you can see a view of the small Big Ben replica and Retiro station. There is the monument to the soldiers who fought in the Malvinas war, don't miss it if you go. You can get to the park if you walk to the end of Florida street.
