  • It is the square which is located on the pedestrian street best known of Mar del Plata, there begins the famous pedestrian San Martin stretching to the coast. During the beginning of the year, are jobs where you can get books inexpensively for the start of classes. Also on its side in the street mitre is a craft fair and other days in the front overlooking the Cathedral make animal adoption days.

  • We toured the square at night, during the events of the day of memory, truth and justice. In its spacious we feel comfortable, we listen and see events unfolding without problems, walk the lit interior streets and share with people a moment of great emotion.
