  • The plaza is really ugly, offers nothing and was dirty when we went. It does not for a photo. In fact there are many tourist attractions in the city. Rather it would be worth taking a bus and go to Frutillar which is in about two hours by bus.

  • This expansive, tree-lined square is like most center city locations except for the mountain views in the background. The Plaza's feature is an enormous fountain. It's a good place for people watching...  more »
  • Our hotel was close by, and on the weekend, the music from the Plaza de Armas made it hard to sleep over the weekend. It is very much a gathering place for locals.  more »

  • The correct name is "Plaza Buenaventura Martínez".

  • While it is quite hard (much concrete) attracts many people, thus serves well its purpose.
