The plaza Independencia is right in front of the Park Hyatt Hotel on Calle Chile. It is only a couple of square blocks and to me, looks prettier at night when it’s illuminated.

To note is that right in front of the Park Hyatt, on the Plaza Independencia side of Calle Chile, are all of the Hop On/Hop Off Mendoza City Tour buses.

The plaza independencia is a nice place to go with its waterfall. I was there on day of independance and the water was blue. There is a nice market on Satutday and Sunday evenings where I bought home made steak knives, bags and pottery for good prices

This is located in the heart of the city and it is across the street from the Park Hyatt hotel. It's quite large - almost 18,000 square feet. Local crafts are sold on the weekends and we saw street performers there as well.
At night they have a brightly lit sign which welcomes everyone to the city and the square.

The square seems to be a vital gathering points for the locals, young, old and familes gather in the end of the day to eat from the food trucks, watch music concerts and live performances and eat from the various food trucks. A place to sit on the grass, have a sandwich and wine and listen to good music. It´s not so much a touristic place, except for the fountains and the symbol of the city. If you´re looking for a special touristic attraction you´ll be disappointed.

A big park where events are held, locals hang out, a good area for an evening stroll. A good place to buy local artisan crafts very inexpensively. I literally purchased silver rings for a dollar here. Planning to bring little trinkets home, this is the place to get a few or a bunch.

The Plaza Independencia is a very beautiful and aesthetic green space in the centre of Mendoza. There is plenty to do here and the plaza boasts parks, fountains and much more!

The spring is in the air in Mendoza and it was on a weekend evening when we first visited this plaza . It was full of life with people of all ages looking happy and enjoying themselves. There was entire ring of craftsmen booths with all kinds of interesting products - a great opportunity to shop for souvenirs. It is a good starting point to most walking tours of Mendoza since it is located in the center of the city. Do beware of pick pocketing in the area. Just need to be aware of your surroundings.

Fountain was down for repairs; I’m sure it’s nice though. The map said there was a modern art museum but sure could not find it anywhere at all. Maybe they tore it out along with the fountain. It’s probably nicer in the spring or summer but it was almost 70 degrees in August, winter here, so in Spring or Dummer it would be too bloody hot for me!

Sunday 03 June, empty city because it's a day of rest.... but last day of trip so not knowing, our cold adventure began. The plaza was desolate, the fountain bubbling away. Know your seasons and local customs. See where we ended up next.....

The plaza is beautiful and is at the center of downtown, so is the reference for almost everything. It has some nice scenarios but there is not much thing to do there.
