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.

    The San Martin square complete the five central squares of Mendoza. In the Centre of the square is an equestrian statue of General San Martin. When we visited Mendoza the square was under construction and inaccessible, but it was possible to get an idea of the importance that crowded place.

    Linda plaza. It is usually quiet day, in the afternoon, usually there are skaters. During the night, it is an area little lit and unsafe. It is currently remodeling. Around this square there are several banks, the contemporary art space and the building of the former national mortgage bank offices

    Recommended to visit it with the walking tour for tips and have more information about San Martín and Madres de Plaza de Mayo.

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.
