The Teatro Independencia ("Independence Theatre") is the premier performing arts venue in Mendoza, Argentina.
The theatre resulted from a provincial project for the creation of a hub for tourism along Independence Square, downtown. The initiative, enacted by the reformist Governor Carlos Washington Lencinas in 1922, led to the opening of the Plaza Hotel, in 1924, and subsequently to a contract for the construction of the first opera house in Mendoza Province. The contract was awarded to Faustino and Mauricio da Rosa, who at the time managed the renowned Teatro Colón of Buenos Aires by concession.

As one of the few places open on New Years Day, it was relatively lively and worth a quick visit at night. Families, couples, children, & singles mutually enjoyed the plaza without problems. Great place you sit down, enjoy some gelato, & relax on a summer night.

Great park on the middle of everything, would be nice to know when the main fountain will be working, heard it is going on years of no use...

The main plaza. It has a lot of artisans that made awesome stuff. I mean, really handamade stuff. Argentina is often filled with "artisans" that sell unoriginal, industrial stuff. These are real artisans that make handmade stuff. It has a fountain that is supposed to be awesome, yet I've gone to mendoza for 10 years and not a single time I've ever seen it working. Locals also told me it doesn't work. A pitty, since its's the main plaza. Good place to go, also, I think there is a museum under the fountain, or something like that, never visisted it though.

Nice area to walk around while in mendoza city. Has a playground for children, a street market, venders, and public entertainment occasionally.

Promedio 4,3 estrellas??? Qué les pico? El lugar es feo, sucio, la fuente no anda, y es muy inseguro.
