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.

  • At the end of Calle Florida, the square, which today is going through some renovations, is well wooded and full of life. The porteños will walk their dogs and see the time passing. Is a good place to feel part of the city and integrate over the life of the porteños. Breaking, overlooks the square Monumental Tower, the ' Big Ben '.

  • Beautiful square located in the Central region of Buenos Aires near the Retiro Neighbourhood, can be accessed by the General San Martin Metro station. High point for the monument del Libertador José de San Martin and the Monumental Tower.

  • Plaza San Martín is a very important place, in tribute to the liberator of America. It is a very large park, which on weekdays is used by employees of the surroundings, especially at lunchtime, to rest. Around the square there are many important historic buildings, of which some can be visited.

  • Muy lindo edificio
  • 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.
  • Beautiful and historic square. Huge and antique trees give the perfect shade during summer.
  • Horrible el wifi
  • One of the most beautiful buildings of the area! This part of the city will undoubtedly remind you of Paris!
