Plaza San Martin, Buenos Aires

(4.1/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
A cool and lush oasis at the heart of town, timeless Plaza San Martin features green lawns and giant trees, national monuments, fountains, and historic buildings, including a 33-story Art Deco structure. This area of the city, which once served as a slave market, a military fort, and a bullring, gained its current appearance in 1936. French landscape architect Carlos Leon Thays designed the public walkways around the statue commemorating the nation's father, General San Martin. See the memorial to the young Argentineans who died in the Falklands War on the downhill side of the park. A visit to Plaza San Martin represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Buenos Aires holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • Buenos Aires is a gorgeous city, a little violent though
  • Muy lindo edificio
  • Views forma the Plaza, Palaces around it, Plaza Hotel, Cavamagh Building.
  • One of the of the prettiest spots in Buenos Aires. Take your time to walk around it and visit the surrounding historical buildings.
  • Take a seat on one of the park benches on a nice sunny day, smile and relax by enjoying the atmosphere. Very fine place to be on a sunny springtime day.
