    Finally could embellish this monument wisely, avoiding arrives it from vandals and graffiti artists. It is beautiful to see it at night, with its lights and the water flowing. One of the most beautiful in Neuquén

    It is a monument not of great importance, but it has a water system so that they do not paint it, as in former times

    The Monumento Al General Jose De San Martin is a very important monument representing General San Martin who can be found in most plazas and parks throughout the Argentina Provinces.

    Cute and emblematic place of the city. It has gone through different States because of use in demonstrations and struggles of various interests. You have done maintenance and remodeling. Although it looks beautiful with water fall, removed the steps that did meeting point for hundreds of young people from the city in times of leisure. It was opened on August 17, 1954, and built on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the city of Neuquén. The monument is composed of made in bronze figure of the liberator and the base made of limestone blocks, worked handmade by a group of Italian stonemasons. Blocks of stones were brought from Zapala, and are placed in discontinuous form so they do not yield.

    Monument to the José General de San Martín was inaugurated in September 1954, 55 years ago. To build it, had to move a few meters towards the North of the Avenida Argentina, in those moments was called Eva Perón Avenue, the pyramid Foundation, located where today is located the monument. See the Neuquén today, shows that everything is part of the daily life of its inhabitants, that which is seen and used, since a few years ago, just 40 or 50, which is a lot for a personal life, but just a moment for the life of the city or province. All those stories, that culture reflected in monuments, electric light, drinking water, paved streets, won over fences ground, rivers, everything that is shocking to this land takes marked traces of the past. Every thing, every phenomenon of the present has its own history.

Where to stay in Neuquen

Still relatively underdeveloped in terms of tourist-oriented infrastructure, Neuquen mostly offers lodgings suitable for business travelers and visitors staying a single night before moving on to Bariloche. Arguably the best choice for tourists on a budget, centrally located guesthouses provide decent rooms close to most major stores and restaurants. If you arrive without a reservation in hand, your best bet remain the city's hostels, catering to students and backpackers and offering private and shared rooms.
