the main square in most cities/towns in Argentina honors either Manuel Belgrano or Gen. Jose de San Martin. It seems that a huge number of things are named after these two, more so that in other countries.
Belgrano- (1770-1820) from Buenos Aires. Was an economist, lawyer, politician. Created the Flag of Argentina. Among many other things, was military leader of the armies of the north during wars of independence.
San Martin-(1778-1850)-created the Army of the Andes, crossed the Andes to Liberate Chile. Leading figure in Peruvian independence also. Buried in Buenos Aires Cathedral
