Overview

The historic Subte Line A was inaugurated in December 1913 and is the 13th oldest underground subway line in the world. The length of the original network was approximately 7 kilometers (4.35 miles) and it originated from the Plaza de Mayo to the Plaza Miserere. Today, it extends to the Carabobo, and follows the old route via the Avenue de Mayo and Congreso. The line is further distinguished with running the same wooden cars that were used during its initial journey. These were built by the Belgian company La Brugeoise and is often regarded as heritage on wheels. The stations such as Peru and Congreso on the route retain the ornamentation and beauty from the time.
