  • It is the oldest square of the city, the epicentre of the religious and social life. Its name pays homage to the founder of Mendoza. It was formerly surrounded the main public buildings and a source. The 1861 earthquake seriously affected its buildings and when the reconstruction of the city was planned, the administrative centre moved to a new sector, so that as one of the memories of the old city, this square became foundational area. The temple Jesuit San Francisco, which can be visited with the same input that can access the Museum is currently contained by the foundational Area Museum and the ruins. A detail to keep in mind: these ruins are always closed. It must be ordered at the Museum opening and guide. On the vegetation: palms of the plaza were brought from the Canary Islands, Brazil and missions. Did my comment find you useful?.

  • Alot.of squares under construction when we did our city tour
  • Nice plaza with some historical value and other interesting things nearby. Take a free walking tour through the old part of town to get the most out of it.
  • Nice park which was the old central park. This is the old part of town. It was the main area until the big earthquake ruined everything in the area.
  • Ok
  • Linda
