San Juan

San Juan

Clouds over the Pacific lose their moisture in the Andean cordillera, where the hot, dry zonda wind sweeps down into the sunny provincial capital of San Juan. Located 170km north of Mendoza and retaining the rhythm of a small town, San Juan is characterized by modern construction and wide, tidy tree lined streets. It was here that Juan Peron's relief efforts, following the area's massive 1944 earthquake, first made him a public figure.
