DID YOU KNOW ?
Great Wines Capitals
In 2005 the city of Mendoza was named as one of the "8º Great Wines Capitals of the World". And in 2010 "Wine" was declared a national drink in Argentina.
The Acequias and Trees
The city's canals (known as acequias locally) play a crucial role in the survival of the city as well as providing it with its numerous and diverse range of trees. Trees are fundamental to Mendoza and can be found in every corner of the city. However, Mendoza is located in the desert and the trees are only able to flourish here due to the ingenious irrigation system that goes back to pre-Hispanic time. This system has been maintained and is still in use today.
The region's most famous park is Parque Provincial Aconcagua, home of the 6962m (22841ft) Cerro Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere and a favorite destination for climbers. Reaching the summit requires a commitment of at least 13 to 15 days, including acclimatization time.
