This is where the original city government existed before the terrible earthquake of 1861. The plaza went by several names over the years including Plaza de Armas and Plaza Mayor. Museo del Area Fundacional is the Foundation Area Museum and it contains archeological remains of the Cabildo -the main administrative institution of the colonial government that was destroyed by the earthquake of March 20, 1861.
The Pedro del Castillo square is named for the man who founded the city of Mendoza in 1561. Adjacent to the park are the Ruins of San Francisco.

Nothing spectacular in comparison to other squares in Mendoza, but quite nice for a liitle walk or stroll.

It is the oldest square in the old city, where colonial life revolved around it. Surrounded by the Town Hall and other important buildings of that time. It has its current name in homage to the founder of Mendoza. We could see the ruins of San Francisco a few meters away and we also entered the Museum of the Foundational Area. It is a very well-kept green space, there were few people in the afternoon, which was when we visited it with my husband.

Located in Ciudad Vieja, this square tells the history of Mendoza and even has many vestiges and ruins from the time of the city's founding.
