Mendoza: Pasaje San Martín




The San Martín Passage is located at Av. San Martín 1136, on the pedestrian Sarmiento corner. Built in 1926 by the initiative of Miguel Escorihuela Gascón (a Spaniard based in the province and owner of the Bodegas Escorihuela Gascón), it was designed by the engineer Ludovig Froude and directed by the engineer Edmundo Romero. The construction was in charge of the construction company F.H. Schmidt. Its double-height galleries connect Calle 9 de Julio with Sarmiento. It has casted barrel vaults with three domes that contain overhead lighting through stained glass skylights with flower motifs, which were brought from France. Its tower has seven floors crowned by a mansard dome. The set is in an eclectic French style with modernist elements: French vitreaux and floral decorations in the masonry. The building was one of the first earthquake resistant in Mendoza and also one of the first to have elevators.
