  • Very well maintained, clean and apparently secure. Worth a visit! In a very careful and tree-lined, this square is very pleasant. Next to it are a few blocks for pedestrians, with tables on the sidewalk, reminding Barcelona.

  • Ideal for sharing a few mates in the Sun or shade depending on the timing. Its water source is a pleasant spectacle.

  • The widest in Mendoza. With huge trees, an allegorical fountain, a large number of classic street lamps and a source of wine.

  • I met an amazing girl here! She is currently holding on to my snowboard gear while I explore Patagonia. That said, it was a beautiful place, and I was lucky enough to there on a celebration weekend. Music in the plaza is awesome! Also, she was Santiagan... Good times and drinking on the street is chill!
  • 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.
  • Recommended to visit it with the walking tour for tips and get to know the urban structure of the whole city.
  • Very nice Plaza, all green and clean. A must see and it's surroundings as well. Great place in Mendoza.
  • It's a really nice place, if you are in Mendoza you have to visit it.
