Plaza Islas Malvinas, La Plata

4.1
Experience Argentine history and current culture when you visit Plaza Islas Malvinas, a square given to the 7th Infantry Regiment by the government in 1912. Afterward, the area became the venue for president Hipolito Yrigoyen’s abdication after a military coup. During the Falklands War, soldiers were sent out from this site; a memorial stands in the square now to commemorate this event. The square also features memorials for those who gave their lives for the country during the war. On Sundays the square becomes a market for local artisans, so try visiting during this time for handcrafted souvenirs.

  • Is only a square, a space in the open air, not a tourist destination, it cannot be said, but as they require a minimum of characters... this place was gives it Regiment 7 infantry, in the city of La Plata, until he was transferred to the town of Spider , on the outskirts of the city.

  • Example of a site recovered, since there was the Casino's official of the regiment 7 infantry. Currently a Cultural Center where there are exhibitions, in the last two months of photography, for example. account with various murals on their walls and sculptures. It preserves the access door with memories of military and disappeared by the military process. A monument to the soldiers fallen in Malvinas. A bar and restaurant wide veery, with indoor and outdoor tables facing the plaza (ideal children) games. The space allows large groups of family or friends meetings. They accept cards and reservations for groups. In a safe, quiet. Surrounded by the square. There are cultural events, for example there is celebrated the Chinese new year in La Plata, the art of living, activities etc.

  • Beer everywhere. Nice place. A little bit overcrowded.
  • Ok
  • Nice square/park, most of the time there's something going on here during the weekends.
  • I prefer parks with green spaces, like Saavedra Park or the forest (near the faculties area) but it's really nice to spend the week day there with friends
  • Ok!
