  • Independence Square is a place that shows a lot about our architecture and way of life of growing up surrounded by squares is part of our culture

  • Beautiful place to enjoy outdoors, watching a great source of water and great varieties of trees and plants. It has a large shield of the province which is bright in the anocheser. But it is being ruined by the people circulating the area, ugly environment, and also in some sectors of note certain deterioration and lack of interest. A pity for so beautiful Mendoza plaza.

  • 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.
  • La plaza principal de la Provincia
  • Muy linda plaza
