  • Mendoza has many squares, all spacious and nicely wooded. They were planned to shelter residents in case of earthquakes that have already occurred many years ago. But this square is quite large, has at least 4 hectares in area, with everything you need to keep in a square. Benches, gazebo, fountain, fairs, artesoes, shows and lots of people walking and resting in their shadows. Is required for the Mendoza.

  • Everything, or almost everything, passes through this square. Tours, restaurants, fairs, celebrations, half marathon, etc. Well located. Have the activities of "mendoncinos". Can pass, sit, do everything, do nothing ... very good.

  • As one of the few places open on New Years Day, it was relatively lively and worth a quick visit at night. Families, couples, children, & singles mutually enjoyed the plaza without problems. Great place you sit down, enjoy some gelato, & relax on a summer night.
  • This nice plaza has a lot to offer . Is good to walk around and relax. some times there are events goin on. Also the artisan vendors are set up on weekend , a lot to look at and to purchase if you like.
  • The heart of Mendoza. It is a great walk starting from Peatonal Sarmiento, one stop on Independence Square, them go ahead algo Sarmiento Street. Finally Ending on Cerro de la Gloria in Dan Martin Park. Great day!!!
  • 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!
