Can one say that every general curved spacetime, locally is maximally symmetric?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that one can say that every general curved spacetime is locally flat (and therefore maximally symmetric with R=0), but I'm talking about a very high curvature spacetime, where still we can consider nonzero curvatures.
