    Place to go with history. It is not required. You can go by car or walking. Free entrance.

    It was not a place that would go if it were not because it is in the center of many other attractions. The historical only.

    Girl I'm going to the Cerro de la Gloria, not only to remember the San feat but to enjoy wonderful views, both the city and the mountains. A good ride but now is little care

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.
