Plaza Espana, Mendoza
(4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Framed by lush vegetation, Plaza Espana features tiled benches, a central space with a fountain, and a large monument in the back, which stands as a testament to the founding of the city. The most distinctive feature of the square are the mosaics made of painted tiles, which cover the benches, the fountain floor, flowerpots, and the base of the monument. The tiled friezes depict scenes from the discovery of America and the work of the missionaries. Two powerful female figures of travertine marble represent Spain and Argentina. High school kids often use the square as a skating ground.

  • What draws attention in the square are the tiny decorated tiles make a beautiful mosaic, not only on the ground, but also banks.

  • Very nice place, with lots of green and mosaic decoration which gives a special touch. If you want to hang out, you can relax in the shade or enjoy the sun while you look the guys practice skate.

  • Beautiful square in the Centre of Mendoza, with many silvers and Spanish tiles, pretty central fountain, too bad that young people break the floor and benches with their skateboards because they use it of race track.
