  • Una plaza muy amplia y muy linda
  • The biggest and most beautiful square in Mendoza. The fountain has an sculpture inside which represents the National flag and during night the National Emblem is lighted on top. Ideal place to relax and enjoy the movement or to buy handicrafts during the weekend market.
  • Very nice Plaza, all green and clean. A must see and it's surroundings as well. Great place in Mendoza.
