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.
