Fuente de los Continentes, Mendoza

4.4
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.

  • Very nice Park and the fountain, but was in remodeling at the time that we visited, a pity

  • This source, like access, its imposing gates and the huge number of artisanal detaalles are its attraction. Since the City tour can be seen in its grandeur, according with the mountain range. It is photography!

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
