Fuente de los Continentes, Mendoza

4.2
Stop by San Martin park and admire Fuente de los Continentes, a large fountain made of cast iron, that adorns the park. Obtained by the Argentinian government in the early 20th century, the fountain represents the four continents at the time (before Oceania and Antarctica were classified as such). Rest on a bench and enjoy the sounds of the fountain, designed in 1874 by French sculptor Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux.

  • Has always been a beautiful artwork, after the remodeling general of the Park has been more beautiful and safer to watch it

  • You can go to do sport, to see people, to eat, to take pictures. It has been very nice with the reform. It is worth to go.
