With its synthesis of modernity and classical elegance, Navarro Correas has managed to find his place in the competitive international market. A pride that is reflected in every corner of its facilities, beautifully integrated to the regional landscape.

The star of the guided tour of its facilities is undoubtedly its COOP built in France in 1910 and winner of a distinction at the Industrial Fair of the Centennial, one of the many jewels hidden for tourism in Mendoza.

In the gourmet category La Marchigiana, traditional restaurant with the best of Italian cuisine, with Headquarters also stands in the city of Mendoza. Captive walks? The beautiful and ancient Church of San Vicente Ferrer, who after passing through successive locations and even suffer an earthquake ended up Finally, in 1912, in its current location, a beautiful gothic style building. Also the monument to Dr. Tomas Godoy Cruz, prominent Patriot of the independence, and the homage to Sosa Drover bust, located both within the Church itself. Of the heroic Drover is a truly exciting story, a memory to cherish our holidays in Mendoza. Pedro Sosa promised general San Martin to travel with his troop to Buenos Aires to get supplies and weapons to the army of the Andes. And, in his eagerness to help the liberation cause, delayed on the road just 45 days, half of what they usually took the trip. One of the many good times that tourism in Mendoza holds for us.
