Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Central Argentina / Province of Buenos Aires / La Plata / Plaza Malvinas
Experience Argentine history and current culture when you visit Plaza Malvinas, a square given to the 7th Infantry Regiment by the government in 1912. Afterward, the area became the venue for president Hipolito Yrigoyen’s abdication after a military coup. During the Falklands War, soldiers were sent out from this site; a memorial stands in the square now to commemorate this event. The square also features memorials for those who gave their lives for the country during the war. On Sundays the square becomes a market for local artisans, so try visiting during this time for handcrafted souvenirs. Take a look at our La Plata day trip planning tool to schedule your visit to Plaza Malvinas and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Beautiful place to relax, immerse yourself in history and drink a mate. There are lots of benches, bins, a playground for kids, trees with shade and a Cafe. We used the toilets of the Cafe, but they weren't very happy about it - public toilets would be nice.
It's great when there is an event, within walking distance of downtown, great for families and pets
