The landmark indicating the centerpoint of the city, San Martin Monument features Argentinian hero general José de San Martín gallantly pointing his hand on his rearing horse. The monument was erected in 1954, stands 8 m (26 ft) tall, features a square water fountain surrounding the pedestal base, and at night is tastefully illuminated by neon lights. Due to the monument’s central location, often you will see the locals using it for a meeting point, demonstrations, and cultural events.

  • 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. Back on Saturday, April 15, 2017, I had the opportunity to visit this monument and It is always a very nice site to see. Thank you.

  • It is one of the most characteristic of the city. Before it was a common monument, but in 2014 the current Mayor resisted it stone and gave him water. View it may be cute, but there are many neighborhoods with water problems, and the mayor keeps putting monuments with water in the heart...

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.
