  • Beautiful place where you can see nature and city. Beautiful park. Accessible on foot or by car. Access is free.
  • Walk to visit the beautiful city of Mendoza. You can access the base walking from the entrance of the Park (is enough but not impossible) in collective or by car. And from there, make the journey walking up to above or you can also climb by car. There are sellers of regional products and a parking lot to leave the car and tour the Memorial walk.
