  • It is the central square of the city of Salta, has a wonderful green space, a number of species of trees native to the different regions of the province and in spring season scented by azahres. In the center has its monument General Arenales with 13 women around it symbolizing the provinces that our country told in colonial times. It also has a gazebo where the youngsters take the advantage to improvise dance steps or from time to time some event is carried out.

  • The square is correct, being the central jump. Full of pigeons and with the monument to Guemes in the center. But the poverty of the people there is in the square is very sad.
