Plaza Italia is one of 5 plazas that make up the center of Mendoza. The main plaza is Plaza Independencia, with the 4 smaller plazas a few blocks distance away. Those plazas are Plaza España, Plaza San Martin, Plaza Chile, and Plaza Italia. Each plaza has a unique ‘personality’, whether it be a fountain, a statue, hand-painted tiles…they are a gathering spot for locals to take a few minutes and relax from their busy days. Each plaza is a lovely place to pause and gaze on something beautiful, people watch, or, if you’re a lusty teenager, make out on a bench with your novio/a. Enjoy, and have a restful weekend.
