Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Central Argentina / Province of Cordoba / Cordoba / Plaza San Martin
Swing by Plaza San Martin to get a taste of one of the city's liveliest public spaces. Originally constructed in 1577, the plaza features wide pathways and manicured green areas topped off with lush local foliage. Grab a park bench and watch the crowds stroll by, or check out the street performers and other activities that tend to crop up here. Alternatively, explore the plaza's surroundings by visiting the nearby cathedral and restored town hall, featuring an arched white facade. Don't miss getting an up-close look at the bronze statue in the center of the plaza, dedicated to independence war hero General Jose de San Martin.

It is a nice checkpoint to have a bottle of flavored water and sit on the many benches made available. It is in the middle of the city and surrounded by lots of touristic places to visit. The cathedral and the Jesuitical square are a couple of examples. Also is a couple of good places (cheaper than anywhere else but the Chinese stores) to buy suovenires on Dean Funes street.
Nice public park in the form of a large plaza, with a equestrian statue of San Martin (a military national hero from the Argentinian independence wars) in the center. I specially recommend visiting the church, and passing by the Tourist Information Center which is located at the building to the right of the Church; they have lots of information and maps there and were very helpful in getting us oriented for the rest of our visit.
