To look at you better

In the pre mountain range of Los Andes, a few kilometers from the City of Mendoza, you get the best view of the whole province.


El  Mirador is located in the town of El Challao, 15 kilometers from Mendoza City.  As far as there are usually locals and  tourists  to contemplate, with the peace that the mountain represents, the best view of the whole city.

There is no infrastructure on the spot.  Actually, it's just the banquina on the  route . But wide and spacious. Enough so we can park our cars , take out a coffee table, take some mattes and contemplate the view that space gives us. A typical game is to recognize, among many buildings and structures, the emblematic buildings of the City.

The place is reached by  Champagnat Avenue. This one starts at  Parque General San Martín , to the northwest. Cross the front of the typical Dalvian neighborhood  and then start climbing towards the mountain. We must pass the entrance to  Cerro Arco  and make a big curve. So, on the left hand we will have El Mirador.


The area is a bit complicated in terms of criminal acts. That is why it  is better to climb in times, usually, traveled. That is, mid-morning, lunch or mid-afternoon . Perhaps, in order not to miss the night view, we can attend last minute, but on Fridays or Saturdays, when more people go up. With this we don't want to generate fear in anyone. In fact, if these schedules are met, there will be no inconvenience.

 Where love blooms 

It is a  remote area, dark and  ideal for couples  who are dabbling into love.  That is why what is sometimes a familiar scenario, unfortunately, becomes a little uncomfortable. But, walking away a little will be enough to continue contemplating the best view of  Mendoza .
