Plaza San Martin, Cordoba

3.4
Swing by Plaza San Martin to get a taste of one of the city's liveliest public spaces. Originally constructed in 1577, the plaza features wide pathways and manicured green areas topped off with lush local foliage. Grab a park bench and watch the crowds stroll by, or check out the street performers and other activities that tend to crop up here. Alternatively, explore the plaza's surroundings by visiting the nearby cathedral and restored town hall, featuring an arched white facade. Don't miss getting an up-close look at the bronze statue in the center of the plaza, dedicated to independence war hero General Jose de San Martin.

  • A really nice place for taking pictures and then move on. There's still so much to see. Just be careful with some dove poop.
  • Lovely smooth tiled plaza with large trees in the heart of down town. Impressive equestrian monument to Libertador Jose de San Martin. Close to museums, cathedrals, pedestrian ramblas, malls, shopping, helado, and restaurants. There is a fun selfie sign on one side that says something to the effect of I love Cordoba!
  • Main square. You can find near a Church, the first goverment building (Cabildo), banks, bus stops, the pedestrian area and the commercial area. Also cero kilometer (kilometro cero) is located here. There is a bus that takes people to the international airport. The square is well illuminated and cleaned.
  • Plaza San Martin is very beautiful. The surrounding architecture is pretty to look at, and there are also art fairs nearby where you can purchase handmade items on weekends.
  • One of the best places in Cordoba, but still dirty and surrounded by ugly buildings. Not a "must go".
