San Martin Square which includes a statue or sculpture

Just a short walk from Mendoza’s downtown, this square is home to a monument that pays tribute to Argentina’s most beloved general.

Stroll through Plaza San Martin, a picturesque square dedicated to one of Argentina’s most celebrated figures. Located in the center of the city’s historic district, this scenic plaza is a must-stop for any tour.

Plaza San Martin was constructed following a devastating earthquake in 1861. City designers took advantage of the destroyed downtown area and built five squares to honor the city and its founders.

Pay a visit to the park to enjoy the green space amid the bustling city center. See the monument to General San Martin, who played a leading role in Argentina’s struggle for independence from Spain. The bronze statue of San Martin depicts “The Liberator" astride his majestic horse.

Explore the busy surrounding areas of central Mendoza. Plaza San Martin is located in the city’s banking area. Stroll around and marvel at the majestic architecture of old financial buildings. Alternatively, walk to the other squares in Mendoza’s historic district and explore their memorials. Independence Square is large and particularly pretty, featuring a large central fountain and lively street shows to entertain the passing crowds.

Plaza San Martin can be reached on foot from downtown Mendoza. Alternatively, get there cheaply by bus or taxi. While you are in the area, find some of the region’s best restaurants and wine bars in the surrounding streets. Make sure to try a glass of Malbec produced by one of the local vineyards. Other attractions in the area include the Espacio Contemporáneo de Arte and the Basilica de San Francisco.

"Had a lovely Suite overlooking Plaza Italia. Due to stay 5 nights but heard rumours that Chile was about to close the border with Argentina because of coronavirus (our return flight to UK was from Chile). So hot foot back to Chile after 2 nights. Sure enough theborder was closed"
