Cerro De La Gloria - City Walk Mendoza - Argentina

Grab a rental bike or lace up some comfortable walking shoes and head to the summit of Cerro de la Gloria. A footpath leaves the zoo entrance and leads toward the summit, but the best views over Mendoza are found along the driving or cycling route. The large Monumento Nacional el Ejercito de Los Andes is built upon the 965-meter (3,166-ft) summit to honor General San Martín’s success in freeing Chile and Peru from Spanish rule. The summit is also an excellent place to watch condors, which regularly land on two nearby light towers. Sunday-Saturday 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Av. Libertador s/n.
