Guaymallén is one of the most important departments in Mendoza. It is part of the prominent urban center called Gran Mendoza and borders the city department. As for its surface it is not one of the largest, but it is around its population. Guaymallén is the place where most people live: 300 mi l.
On May 14, 1858, during the Government of Cornelio Moyano, a decree was signed stating that the territory of San José (today, one of the most important districts) would henceforth be called the Department of Guaymallén and would have the head of that neighborhood, under the name of Villa de Guaymallén.
The word Guaymallén means “land of swamps , vegas or bathed”. Paradoxical. Mendoza is a real desert today and the department of Guaymallén is no exception. On the contrary, it does not have any major water cause.
Guaymallén's location is neuralgic. Two national routes cut off the department: the South Access ( National Route 40 ), which connects it to the provincial south, and the East Access (National Route 7), which crosses it from east to west, being the main access road to the City and exit to Buenos Aires . This has made the department's economy grow and diversify, containing more people with the installation of large shopping centers and major hotel chains.
Boxer Nicolino Locche , one of the best in the history of our country, was born in Guaymallén. In fact, at present, a major sports stadium is named after him. But it is not the only highlight, but there are more people representing the department abroad, such as Pity Martinez , who was born in the district of El Sauce.
Finally, it is important to mention that Guaymallén is not a place prominent for its tourist offer and does not offer spaces of public interest. However, more and more people are taking advantage of the green spaces adjacent to the aforementioned East Access or the main district squares.
