Fodor's Review

In Mendoza's main square you can sit on a bench in the shade of a sycamore tree and watch children playing in the fountains, browse the stands at the daily artisan fair, or stroll past the historic Plaza Hotel (now the Park Hyatt) on your way to the shops and outdoor cafés on pedestrian-only Calle Sarmiento, which bisects the square.

Museo Arte Moderno. Right in Plaza Independencia, this museum displays regularly changing paintings, ceramics, sculptures, and drawings by Mendocino artists from 1930 to the present. Plaza Independencia, 5500. 261/425–7279. 16 pesos, free on Wed. Tues.–Fri. 9–8, Sat. and Sun. 2–8.
