  Plaza San Martin
by swesn

Plaza San Martin is one of the plazas in central Buenos Aires, within walking distance from Retiro and the start of several of my favourite streets and avenues like Calle Florida and Avenida Santa Fe.

The area just around this plaza (at the southern end) has many gorgeous architecture from the grand ol' days of Buenos Aires. I love wandering around this area and looking up up up.

There is the famous English Clock-tower and ironically, there is also an eternal burning fire to commemorate the heros who died during the war of Isla Malvinas (or Falkland Islands, which is fought against the English).

Many professional dog-walkers like to bring their dogs here and let them run loose around the gardens.

My favourite summer activity is to come here and lie down on the slope of the garden, with the view of the Clock Tower in front of me and gazing at the true-blue sky and doing some people-watching. Rolling down the grassy slope is lovely as well.
