Plaza General San Martin is located opposite the Municipal Palace and the San Rafael Archangel Cathedral. It is a green space that was donated by the French Rodolfo Iselin. The square, its layout and its design was conceived by Ing. Fiorini. When it opened at the beginning of the century, he had a bust of Gral. San Martin.

The square also has a sundial, a computer pergola with computers for use by the public, and the statues of the Venus de Milo, Diana the Huntress and Vestar.
