Plaza Independencia, San Miguel de Tucuman

3.8
#2 of 9 in Outdoors in Province of Tucuman
Planted with dense vegetation and dominated by a marble statue of liberty, Plaza Independencia faces the city's most important buildings, including the government house and the cathedral. This central city square dates back to the 17th century, when it served as a parade venue, before becoming a public promenade in the mid 19th century. The present appearance of the square is from the 1970s, when reconstruction widened the sidewalks. Walk under the shade of laurels, palms, and orange trees, and unwind on one of the benches next to a fountain.

  • Like everything else in the city, the square is very neat and well maintained. Beautiful statue of liberty in the Center.

  • Plaza Independencia is located in the centre of the city, where the main sights of the four-week area, such as the cathedral, are very suitable for walking.

  • It has interesting architecture and decoration objects. On their sides is the theatre Mercedes Sosa, muchoa restaurants, tourist information and access to main pedestrian streets. There are sources of water that light up at night. It is a very good place to see people spend and relax a while seeing the city's everyday life.
