  • The Plaza San Martín is part of the four squares that are around the Plaza Independencia. As well as the other has too much green and banks under the treetops. The Center has a monument to General San Martín and a beautiful Fountain. Valley traversing the region.

  • one of the satellites of the main square of the city, is dedicated to the Libertador General San Martín, very nice, arranged and with a beautiful monument of the liberator, on a rock brought from the mountains. She is surrounded by fabulous buildings of the era, such as the Church of San Francisco, the former banco Hipotecario, which is fabulous, and several magnificent buildings of banks. Cute ride.

  • Compared to the other places in the area (Spain, Italy, Chile) is the one that least highlights of them. In the Center there is a statue of the General José of San Martín which is a replica of which is located in the homonymous square in the area of retirement. Beyond that, there is no more to highlight it. If take into account that on one side is the Basilica of San Francesco where the baton of San Martin, in addition to the remains of his daughter Mercedes, his son-in-law Mariano Balcarce and her granddaughter María Mercedes.
