Argentina Photo of the Week–Plaza Italia, Mendoza

DSC05456


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.
