    The capital of San Juan is very new, due to the earthquakes that destroyed the ancient city, so there are no buildings leaving normal. Almost any spectacular attraction.

    The Cathedral was rebuilt after the earthquake of the year 1944, since the old structure was completely destroyed. It is part of the circuit of the bicentennial of independence along with the Plaza 25 de Mayo, which is located in front.

    Very nice building, inside expected to see more, some days before I could go to the Cathedral of la Rioja and liked it more. If you have a few minutes isn't wrong go to meet her.

Where to stay in San Juan

Within Av. Circunvalacion sits the main bulk of San Juan's places to stay. Plush, modern high-rises tower over the central neighborhood, while older, more traditional hotels line the edges of the main urban parks and plazas. Budget-friendly options come in the form of unassuming, converted residential blocks and rental apartments. If you head outside of the ring road, you'll have a choice between relaxing lodgings on the estates of local wineries, and a good selection of back-to-basics campgrounds.
