The Plaza San Martin was looking really good recently and the weather was summery and idyllic. The good thing, though, is that the park affords considerable shade. It was a great place to relax and people watch!

Located in the inner city, this huge place is encompassing statues of the Libertador and gardens surrounded by beautiful private houses becoming official buildings. It is very nice to enjoy a guided tour if you can. You will go deep into history.
