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.

  • The Islands Falkland PC tends to have a lot of activities and that makes it one of the most chosen. In addition to being a beautiful square and have a cultural center with bar included. I recommend visiting it. It is located among the quiet streets of old houses and new buildings. It's worth the time. It would be good to the current administration of the municipality to enhance the fair of artisans, of great quality and job for many.

  • A pretty square. The interesting thing is his monument, the gate of the military flag they left without knock. Also the cultural center and the underground pass that exist on square are what make this place special

  • Square which has a very important story for the Argentines. It was the 7th Regiment of infantry, military body that was in the Falklands. Today is the main door as iconic memory. Today is a beautiful park / square of 3 blocks with many trees, lawns, a large restaurant and stage where are periodically performed recitals, exhibitions and craft fairs of all kinds. Very good to visit family.

  • Beer everywhere. Nice place. A little bit overcrowded.
  • 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
  • A nice place to go with kids in La Plata.
  • Ok

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.
