Just like the majority of cities in the country, Mendoza resembles a standard European city. In the center of the city there is a lot of greenery, so both locals and travelers traditionally love walking there. As the city is located in a fairly arid region, you can see numerous man-made channels on its territory. These channels are designed to maintain a humid microclimate in Mendoza. The creation of the artificial irrigation system made it possible to decorate the territory of the city with greenery, which is not usual for the natural environment of this region. In addition to this, there are famous vineyards around the city. While walking on the city’s streets you will see at least one channel on each of them. In order to make the movement more comfortable, the streets are connected by bridges. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
