Mendoza, famous for lodging Mount Aconcagua and for its Malbec wines, is one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Nestled in the foothills of the Andes Mountain Range, it gives shape to an incredible oasis created by man with the help of the Mendoza and Tunuyán Rivers, which have been wisely channeled into a huge irrigation system that gives life to everything it touches.

Mendoza is full of history and culture, expressed in its streets, museums, cafés, squares, institutions and public buildings.
