Mendoza is not only famous for being Argentina’s very own wine producing region, but also for being one of the country’s prettiest cities. It has many stunning parks and plazas, and we have pulled together a list of the most beautiful parks and gardens for you to explore on your visit to the city of Mendoza.

2. Plaza Chile

Park

Plaza Chile is an homage to Argentina’s closest neighbour to the west, and the Chilean flag is represented in its eclectic central fountain, which is tiled with a rendition of the red, white and blue flag, with a star in the middle. Adorned with more palm trees and hanging willows, Plaza Chile’s claim to fame is that is has an incredible 71 benches dotted around the park so visitors can relax and enjoy the Mendoza sunshine.

3. Parque San Martin

Park

This oasis in the middle of the city is certainly South American, dripping with palm trees and a monumental statue to Argentine liberator General San Martin, rearing up on his horse atop a mound of stone in the centre of the park. The park was designed by famed French/Argentine landscape architect Carlos Thays, who designed many of the parks in Buenos Aires, giving the capital its French style.

5. Parque O’Higgins

Park

Parque O’Higgins is a linear park that runs alongside Mendoza’s Cacique Guaymallen Canal and is a new development that encourages outdoor activity. It has some outdoor gyms that people can use free of charge, as well as children’s playgrounds and play areas for dogs. The park is named after the Chilean general Bernardo O’Higgins, a famous figure in the region, which is close to the Chilean border.
