Ruinas de San Francisco
Parque San Martin (different to Plaza San Martin)

The harvest is in March in Mendoza, so you'll probaly get a bit disappointed if you show up in May.
There's several busservices from Santiago to Mendoza, and it's quite difficult to find a bad company. Generally is the busservices in Argentina and Chile of a really high standard. If you want to pay a little extra just take the "full cama" there will get served dinner and sleeping as it was like home.
One of the really good wineries is Lagarde about 12 kilometer outside Mendoza. Maria guides you through really nice wines
