    Of the several plazas in Mendoza, Plaza de Espana stands out for its beautiful azulejos (tiles). There is also an open air crafts market where you can buy things like carved wood items, jewelry, some textiles etc. (there's also a similar market in Plaza de Independencia). Near the plaza there is an old Spanish restaurant, just a few steps west of the plaza next to the emply lot.

    A few steps from the Independencia square and at one block from Avenida San Martín, it posseses a design composed of a central space with a typical fountain of the spanish patios and in the back, a monument representing the brotherhood of the argentinians and the spanish with comemmoration murals. España square is one of the most admired places for the tourists and mendocinos. The tiles and shinning floor, the central fountain , the monument and the trees will surely seduce you to relax here for a long time.
    In my opinion, this was the most beautiful of Mendoza's squares.

    In addition to it's leafy streets, Mendoza is also famous for it's open and treed Plazas. The 'new' Mendoza, built after the 1861 earthquake, is centred around the large Plaza Independencia, with a square layout. Like the pattern on a '5' when you roll the dice, four smaller Plazas are diagonally located one block away from each of the four corners of Plaza Independencia.

    Each of these Plazas (Chile, San Martin, Italia and Espana) are different, yet all are beautiful in their own way. We were very impressed by their open nature, with hundreds of different types of trees, flowers and fountains available for anyone who wants to simply relax in the pleasant ambiance of Mendoza. We could not help but notice that these Plazas were places that the locals flocked to for their relaxation and enjoyment!

    I´m totally agree with my VT friend Andrea (andal13), Plaza España - with tiled benches, murals - even small tiles set into the ground at regular intervals, is, the most beautiful park in the city .-
