Once railway station Panorama, Argentina

Once railway station, formally (Spanish: Estación Once de Septiembre (11th of September Station), informally estación Once (Eleven Station)), IPA: [ˈonse]) is a large railway terminus in central Buenos Aires, Argentina in the barrio of Balvanera.

The station, inaugurated on December 20, 1882, is located in the barrio of Balvanera immediately north of Plaza Miserere, a large public square. The station is named after the September 11, 1852, rebellion of Buenos Aires against the Federal government of General Justo José de Urquiza. Coincidentally President Domingo Faustino Sarmiento also died on September 11 (1888), but contrary to popular belief in Argentina, this is not the date commemorated by the station's name.
