Being in UK in 1982 as a child I remember doing school projects on this pointless war. If interested in this history, go to Plaza San Martín and walk down the stairs. At the time we visited, there weren’t any guards there.

This monument is a powerful reminder of a war that should have never been fought. Over 600, mostly drafted, young men killed for what?

Monumento a Combatientes de Malvinas is located at Plaza San Martin to make tribute to those who died in the Malvinas wars between 2 April to 14 June 1982. A place for those who want to remember the sad period on the Falkland wars.

This memorial to those Argentines who died in the Malvinas conflict with Great Britain is reminiscent of the Vietnam memorial in Washington. The names of those that died are on a stone wall, and the memorial is usually guarded by members of the Argentine military....More

Visited briefly during our tour, frankly if you were not taken to this location you would not know it existed. It is possibly listed in Spanish language literature but otherwise nothing. In fact I originally thought that the 17 small wooden crosses placed in a...More

A monument to those who died during the Malvinas conflict in 1982 and is similar to the U.S. Vietnam wall. It's a nice memorial and worth paying ones respects to their fallen soldiers. Almost half of their dead (300) were killed in the sinking of...More

Went with Jimena from Buenos Aires Free Tours. Having a guide made this tragic war much more understandable. The war came during a period of rapid inflation. Basically the Argentine military government, under the leadership of General Leopoldo Galtieri, wanted to distract attention from its...More
