  • 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!
  • An ordinary plaza. It's been going thorough a restauration during the period visited (may-17), so that it was not available to evaluate in better conditions.
  • Beautiful and imposing square. It's made up of 4 blocks. Great nature, fountains and handcraft sellers.
  • 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.
