Notes on the Geography of Argentina: Avenida de Mayo: Photo 17
A chapel houses the mausoleum of General San Martín, whose body was returned from Europe in 1880. He had died there 30 years earlier and, contrary to what you might expect of El Libertador, had lived there the last 25 years of his life.
The female figures represent Argentina, Chile, and Peru, the countries he freed from Spain.
