Gran Mendoza

Very close to the center of the City of Mendoza, the capital district and the surroundings of Luján de Cuyo, Maipú, Las Heras, Guaymallén and Godoy Cruz are part of a whole that shares the same idiosyncrasy: Great Mendoza.

The urban grid has expanded and, in turn, the satellite cities have gained importance and a life of their own. If there is one outstanding characteristic about its layout, it is its wide streets and sidewalks, its cleanliness and the old tree groves that cover the streets as if they were a green tunnel. The irrigation ditches, formerly made of dirt and now of stone, water parks and squares that make people from Mendoza feel proud.

Dwellers of these large cities are polite and willing to listen to visitors. They proudly show their origins, their history and their noisy streets. They are sociable and worship friendship. And that is evident while walking round the area.
