October 9 BUENOS AIRES / MENDOZA

At the appointed time we will transfer to Domestic Airport (AEP) to board your flight to Mendoza
.
Mendoza It is really fascinating to find a green city like Mendoza in a kind of dessert situation. Its inhabitants really love their town. On each side they`ve planted trees to have shade during the very hot summer months. As in Mendoza there is not very much rain, they dug a kind of channel system in order to give water to the trees.

After arrival we will enjoy a City Tour Mendoza including park stops

Visit the city sharing the culture and history of its foundation by the Spanish colonizers four centuries ago. It includes a visit to the oldest part of the city with Pedro del Castillo Square, the sensual Alameda of General San Martin (Popular Avenue), the Museum of “Area Fundacional”, Ruins of San Francisco Church (last testimony of Mendoza city before the terrible earthquake that took place in 1861). Along tree lined streets, hosed down by the well-known irrigation ditches, you will drive to the new city: its squares (like Plaza Independencia), downtown Mendoza, the main avenues and the Civic Center, the old residential area until arrival at the General San Martin Park with its lake and rose garden and the Hill of Glory, a popular spot for a panoramic view.

We will have with us an Architect who is an expert on Landscaping guide us.
