  • Fair and deserved homage to our martyrs, place that revives us a very special feeling toward our heroes. To always remember them properly, so that we do not forget them ever. I highly recommend it.

  • The Plaza Malvinas recall on the "Falklands war" from 1982. At that time, the Argentine military junta under General Videla, citing completely ambiguous claim of ownership from the 18th century has tried to conquer the archipelago inhabited by Britons. The war cost several hundred Argentines and British life. Solidarity plaques by local authorities from all parts of Argentina, which should demonstrate the support of the population for this war of aggression are the central element of this great Memorial. Unfortunately, the monument is a sad example of this how to exploit people for wrong objectives.

  • This Plaza give a history lesson about the battle of the Argentines against the British in the Malvinas. There are murals with pictures and explanations, the flame in tribute to the soldiers, and a very large map of the Falkland Islands, worth knowing!
