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.

    One is walking by this place and it seems that it is walking through Argentine history... surrounded by historical buildings

    It is the main square of the city, surrounded by the main historic buildings, bars and places to eat something fast. Many young people gather especially out of schools. It has an important source and stands the statue of liberty made in marble by sculptor Lola Mora. I found a place that is quiet and safe, with much movement at all times.

    It's like a lot of city centers but there's nothing that stands out too much, really relaxing and lots of activities at night.
