Ninth Of July Park

Ninth of July Park is the largest public park in the city of San Miguel de Tucuman, Argentina.Ninth of July Park continues to host Independence Day parades on its namesake date, often with the attendance of the President of Argentina. Its considerable cultural patrimony is currently undergoing renovations, and the park is being studied by UNESCO for a possible bestowment of their recognition as a World Heritage Site.

Independence House

The House of Tucumán  is a historical building and museum located in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina, where an assembly of delegates from several provinces of the country (the Congress of Tucumán) declared independence from Spain on 9 July 1816.

Distinguishable by its Solomonic columns inf front, the house is an otherwise typical colonial era dwelling in Argentina, and was built near the end of the 17th century for Mayor Diego Bazán y Figueroa. It has three courtyards, one of them surrounded by rooms. Due to its bad condition, it was almost completely demolished in 1903, but it was reconstructed in its original form (based on photographs and documents of the time) in 1941, and it was declared a National Historical Monument the same year.

Timoteo Navarro Museum of Art

is the leading museum of its kind in Tucumán Province, Argentina.The museum was first proposed by a prominent local lawyer and educator, Juan Bautista Terán, who in 1912 established the National University of Tucumán. The museum was conceived to complement the new university's School of Fine Arts, and on June 18, 1916, the institution was inaugurated as the first in the city of San Miguel de Tucumán.Renamed in honor of the famed local sculptor Lola Mora in 1975, the museum was again renamed in 1986 in honor of local painter and art instructor Timoteo Navarro.

Tucumán Government Palace

Tucumán Province, the most populous and economically important in the Argentine Northwest, lacked architecturally significant government offices, early in the 20th Century. As both a remedy to that absence and a means to encourage unban renewal and development in the provincial capital city of San Miguel de Tucumán, the Governor, Luis F. Nougués, organized the construction of a government palace to replace the colonial cabildo then still serving as his offices. The cabildo housed not only the governor's offices; but also a courtroom and small jail.
