Although the fountains here look like theyâ€™re rising from childrenâ€™s paddling pools, Plaza Fabini is a pleasant, green oasis from the bustle of Avenida 18 de Julio, and a popular spot to laze on a sunny day. Named after the engineer and politician Juan Fabini, the central monument is a violent portrayal of war, dedicated to those â€śknown or ignoredâ€ť that fought for liberty. There is also a small, bright playground for young children with swings, see-saws and a slide.
