Plaza Italia, Mendoza

4.1
Relax at Plaza Italia, one of the city's major gathering places. One of four squares in close proximity, this one features Romanesque statues built in 1918 in honor of Italian immigrants who came to the city during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The surrounding trees offer plenty of shady spots in which to relax and enjoy a picnic on the grass. A main fountain acts as a focal point of this well-maintained plaza, while the playground offers a good option for entertaining the little ones.

    The Italy Square is perhaps the most beautiful squares of Independence Square. Very frequented, the residents of the neighborhood are picnics, rest and have as living space.

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
