Plaza Belgrano, La Plata

2.6
Get your pulse on the city or while away your time with a book at Plaza Belgrano, a charming and vibrant square in the heart of La Plata. Spread over 2 hectares (4.9 acres), the plaza is about four times smaller than was originally intended in 1884, when the plan was to make a large city park. Nevertheless, it offers some green space for relaxation, so grab a seat on the grass under the canopy of trees if you wish. Several eateries line the square, serving traditional Argentinian street food as well as hot dogs and other modern fast-food staples.

    It is a place that has a monument to the flag. Split in half by the 13 Avenue of La Plata. It has ice skating and bicycles.

Where to stay in La Plata

Many of La Plata's accommodation options lie within the geometric square of the city core, which plays home to a majority of the town's tourist attractions. The variety of mid-range hotels in the city center keeps prices reasonably low; many of these are located in historic buildings just a few blocks from central Plaza Morena and within easy walking distance to the museum of La Plata, the cathedral, and main road arteries. If you're on a tight budget, consider staying at one of the city center's many hostels; though you'll likely be sharing a room with others in bunk beds, the low prices make them economical options.
