This is the map of Mendoza City.
MENDOZA is the capital of the province of Mendoza about 700
miles west northwest of Buenos Aires. Small for a provincial
capital with 700,000 inhabitants it is a commercial city but
with a lot for the tourist. Located in the foothills of the
Andes mountains means nearby rafting, camping, and sightseeing.
It is a wine center for Argentina. The downtown area is largely
pedestrianized. The outdoor cafés and tree-lined avenues
attest to the city's European heritage. Mendoza is a perfect
example of a successful combination of Spanish, Italian and
Mendoza was a desert in its beginnings, and thanks to man it has become an oasis. Hundreds of thousands of trees border its irrigation channels, supplied by melting snow from the Andes mountains. Dozens of parks, plazas and walks seem to deny the arid reality from which the city emerged. The icon of the city is the Parque San Martin, designed by Carlos Thays in 1897, with 50,000 trees including 700 different species from all over the world. It contains the Cerro de la Gloria (Hill of Glory), on top of which stands the monument to the army of the Andes, who crossed into Chile obtaining its independence from the Spaniards. There is also a zoo, a soccer stadium and the Teatro Griego (Greek amphitheatre) where the annual "Fiesta de la Vendimia" (Wine Feast) celebrates its grand finale.
