Fuente de los Continentes, Mendoza

(4.5/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Fuente de los Continentes and other attractions that appeal to you using our Mendoza tourist route planner.
