Parque General San Martín
Parque General San Martín Review
This 971-acre park dates back to 1896, and has more than 50,000 trees from all over the world. Fifteen kilometers (9 miles) of paths meander through the park, and the gorgeous rose garden has about 500 varieties. You can observe aquatic competitions from the rowing club's balcony restaurant, visit the zoo that has monkeys running loose, or play tennis or golf. Scenes of the 1817 Andes crossing by José de San Martín and his army during the campaign to liberate Argentina are depicted on a monument atop Cerro de la Gloria (Glory Hill) in the park's center. The stadium hosts popular soccer games, and was built for the 1978 World Cup (which Argentina won). The Amphitheater (capacity 22,500) fills to the brim during Vendimia, the annual wine-harvest festival.
