    Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
    combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
    make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
    sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
    and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
    by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
    port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
