Imagine a square with a musical fountain where the water changes (color and shape) according to the music. Has a very good view to the cathedral also

We visited this Plaza dedicated to Gral San Martin,the Liberator of Argentina,at least four times.AS in most cities in Argentina,Plaza San Martin is a common fixture.On one side is the old colonial government building that is hundreds of years old.There are some cool sights there..old carvings and statues,and a tribute to Christopher Columbus.There are historical artifacts as well.

Located next to the historic cathedral. A historic part of town with a very active square that is clean and enjoyable. Many great place to eat and shop nearby too.

We walked around the plaza during the day then I returned near sundown for photo-ops. A great place to relax and watch the world go by.

Must visit and walk around. I love how they made the floor simulating the shades of the buildings. Really nice.

Good for sightseeing. Maybe just one time. We walked around with our dogs, but they had no place to hang out in since all the grass areas were fenced off. Keeps it clean, but no one can even relax on the grass.

Don't expect to chill out there, it is not worth it, especially the shops (fast food mainly) all around

Surrounded by historic buildings, restaurants, and shopping, this is a busy place. Hawkers, street artists, and panhandlers vie for your attention. Shady benches beckon, but beware of the birds in the trees above. We got dropped on more than once.

This Plaza is a main focal point but it really needs something to liven it up and make it prettier. Rather a disappointment

One of the main squares of the city, this place its a bustling area that has from several old buildings to a flock of shops all around. The area its under minor maintenance all year round but still its not properly address in terms of cleaning and gardening. Still, its a nice place to admire the local atmosphere with plenty... More
