Mendoza City Tour
Your host picks you up from your hotel and tour Mendoza City. We will visit the main squares; Independencia (which plays host to a Modern Art Museum and a theater), Plaza España and Plaza San Martín. Next we visit Las Heras Street Museum and the historical indoor Central Food Market, before heading to Parque General San Martín. At the top end of the park we ascend Cerro de la Gloria (Glory Hill) crowned by a magnificent statue of San Martin and his Liberation Army. Erected on top of and around the sides of a natural rock plinth it really is one of the worlds most powerful and complex bronze sculptures, executed by the well known Uruguayan sculptor Ferrari, with help from four Italian sculptors nearly one hundred years ago. On the way up the hill we will see the almost Greek looking amphitheatre (25,000 capacities) the permanent home of the annual and hugely popular Crowning of The Queen. Towards the bottom end of the park we will come to the Park Lake and back into the transport to see the Civic Centre, where many of the Provinces essential government offices are located.
