  • Framed by Joaquín V. Gonzalez, Buenos Aires, Pelagio B. Luna, San Nicolàs de Bari streets, in the heart of La Rioja, this square is a work of the well-known landscape architect Carlos Thays, and one required rides for those who arrive in this city. Aged Woods, with paths, benches, lighting, pergolas and a source, appears like an oasis, to which around are the main buildings such as the Cathedral, the Government Palace and the Casino, as well as several restaurants and cafes. In its centre is situated the equestrian monument of General San Martín and in one of its chamfers, the Tourism Office of La Rioja, as well as the sculpture of father Francisco, with the cure Angelelli, along with a flock of sheep. Cute space outdoors, that we have gone through during our stay in the capital of La Rioja, in November 2016.

  • Lively plaza in the center of La Rioja. Nice fountains with several small cafes around.
  • Beautiful place
  • The main square of the city. It is very cute and quaint, and although it's not very big, it is worth visiting it. It is the true Center of the city. It has public baths and is very well maintained.
