  • Huge, well-known and Central Plaza where all we found ever. Both teenagers, children, as well as adults, put this square as a point to spend a Sunday in full sun. Many groups come to the square from different parts of the city. It is a few blocks from downtown, facing the sea.

  • Hace tiempo que la dejaron fachera.
  • Excellent square located in Av. Libertad and the coast of the city of Mar del Plata, has several games for children and also in it is the Museum of natural sciences. Also you will find sculpture homage to Don Quixote de la mancha and his faithful Assistant Sancho. Facing the same access beaches are public.
