Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We meet the great man again in our travels through South America! This beautiful little square is surrounded by great buildings but the centrepiece is the huge statue of the General on his steed being feted by victory maidens. One of a raft of memorials to San Martin, seen as the father of Peru's independence!

A large square dominated by the statue in the middle and surrounded by attractive colonial style buildings. Worth a visit as part of a sightseeing tour but it is after all, just another plaza.

Not much to say. Ok landmark to meet people and then go somewhere else. Noisy and crowded and dirty.

Just one of several huge statues around town. Well maintained and easy to see. Our group enjoyed the plaza and the history lesson.

Plaza San Martín is one of the most popular public spaces in the city of Lima, Peru. It is located at Colmena avenue, within the Historic Centre of Lima which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1988 by UNESCO. It is located near the Plaza Mayor of Lima and is connected to it by the Jiron de la Union. A huge monument of Peru's liberator, José de San Martín seats at the centre of the square. This is mostly where tour groups meet for a tour of the historic centre of Lima

Nothing very special here, except the symbols associated with this place. Take an attentive look at the statue in the middle, especially at the woman standing for liberty and try to guess why she is wearing a Lama on her head! ;)
When visiting Lima, I would recommend you stopping by this place for some minutes!

This Plaza is another main attraction of Lima which is slightly outside of the Main attraction of the Historical district.

The taxi dropped us there because it was easier due to the traffic in the historical center. It's a nice start point otherwise there doesn't to be something special there...
