Plaza San Martin, Mendoza

(3.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Relax and watch local life go by at Plaza San Martin, a vibrant and picturesque plaza situated in the city's financial district. Dedicated to the iconic Argentine liberator José de San Martín, the square features a bronze equestrian monument of the general at its center. In fact, it's a full-scale replica of the original in Buenos Aires, designed by prominent sculptor Jose Daumas. A plaque informs visitors that they are currently 747 m (2,450 ft) above sea level. Plaza San Martin is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Mendoza Edition.
