The “Edén de los Andes”, Mendoza city and its beautiful surrounding mountains. Contemplate the majesty of Aconcagua Mountain at almost 7000 meters high, making it the highest peak in America. Marvel at the ingenious irrigation system established by Captain Don Pedro del Castillo who founded the city in 1561. This system transports water from Mendoza River to fields of maize, beans and pumpkin, converting the place into the oasis that it is today.
