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, Godoy Cruz Edition.

  • Is the square of Mendoza with the most imposing sculpture of all, General San Martin in your horse. However, the square that is dirtier and abandoned. Visit only if you make a point of knowing the 5 squares.

  • The old clock square, as at first it became known, until in two earthquakes will move the clock that stood in the square, a Commission which pays honor to San Martin worked for that square will take the name and the monument that today everyone can admire.

  • The square is really very dirty, even. When we arrived, some cops were making a group of homeless leave the premises. There's only a statue of San Martin in the Center and even the banks were dirty. Do not need to include in the script if not way!
