Underground tunnels in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is full of Mysteries, one of them is the underground tunnels that connect the city, tunnels are from the Renaissance style, urban archeologists try to solve the mysteries hidden city.

Much has been said about the underground of the city of Buenos Aires. From hiding a network of tunnels where the Jesuits carried out bloody torture sessions or a network designed for smuggling and to allow the escape of any government of the day, to the enormous hidden treasure during the Viceroyalty ...The truth is that every so often, the floor of a square sink and uncovers strange underground constructions, and sometimes the same happens when an excavator opens up land for future skyscrapers. So it is clear that the Buenos Aires underground houses more than pipes, sewers or parking lots.

The small area where the tunnels are located on Peru street in the Manzana de las Luces was recently discovered in 1980 as they were covered with earth. Who, how and when covered them is unknown. Archeologists analyzed the walls and established that seniority refers to late 1600 or early 1700.
