The square is divided into two different sections. One area consists of a garden with a steep slope, while the other is a flat area full of trees and surrounded by important historical buildings.
Monuments in the Plaza San Martín
- Monument to General San Martín and the Independence Armies: This bronze equestrian monument pays homage to General Jose de San Martín and the most important milestones in the fight for independence.
- Monument to the Fallen in the Falklands War: Erected in honour of those who lost their lives in the Falklands War, this monument is a cenotaph formed by two black marble plaques that bear the names of those who didn’t return home after this war.
- La Duda: This marble sculpture, whose name means "Doubt" in English, depicts a young man with a Bible. Next to him, you'll see an older man who appears to be questioning him.
