Plaza Espana, Mendoza

(4.1/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • Agadavel place in the Centre of Mendoza to hike and walk take. Has children's playground. Is safe and well lit. Maintenance and cleaning is good. In winter, enjoy the Sun of the melody and converse with students cutting class. In summer enjoy the shade on the day and the refreshing atardecer. You can make a snack, buying in stores that are crossing the street, or take your home/hotel. You can take your pet, but take care of the dejeitos not to take warning!

  • ... most beautiful Mendoza, with playground for children and a very neat vegetation. For October 12th every year, fairs and other related celebrations are made. It is currently rather impaired by skaters
