Fragmentos del mensaje de la ley 1.638.
Creadora de la plaza Espana. Mendoza.

No existe pueblo alguno de los innumerables que se alzan en los paises Americanos de habla espanola que no guarde con la madres partia una profunda afinidad spiritual ni aun las ponderosas influencias autoctonas. Que han gravitado y siguen gravitando sobre los grupos ethicos de formacion eminentemente Americana. Han podido desdibujar esos rasgos de hispanidad caracteristica que les da especial fisonomia. Vigorosos, aunque invisibles lazos. Nos unen a las Espana perpetua que dio inmortal aliento a esa progenie milagrosa de pueblos. En cada uno de ellos. Con relieves diversos. Esta plasmado el genio de La Raza: Transiende en el caracter arquetipico de sus instituciones liberales. Hereda das de aquellas que en la Espana de la era contemporanea dieron la paulta a la moderna arquitectura de los estados. Revive en las manifestaciones de cultural asimilada de la civilizacion peninsular.

Fragments of the Message of the Law 1.638 that created the Plaza of Espana.

There is no country in the Americas where Spanish is spoken from its beginnings which does not keep ties with the motherland’s spiritual influences of autonomy. The culture has gravitated and continues

to gravitate above the ethnic groups of all countries of the Americas. No one has been able to erase the traits of their Spanish characteristics that give them their physical appearance. Strong but invisible ties join us to the immortal and perpetual Spain, giving breath to this miraculous progeny of people each with different embossing reflects the genius of race cuts in nature of liberal archetypal legacy of those institutions in perpetual Spain from the contemporary era that gave the standard for modern united architecture revived in the expressions of its culture of civilization assimilated in the mainland.

English Translation:
Fragments of message 1,638 law.
Creator of the Plaza Espana.

Mendoza, born under the spell of Hispanic creative genius, was never indifferent to the tradition of the race. It encourages the secular stimulus, the vibrant energy, the value and virtues of the breed. The thought to give the name of the mother country to one of the parks in the capital city of the province is an old aspiration of the Mendoza community. The reason why is the tribute they owe our full adhesion and our invariable feelings. Another aspect is our loyal recognition of the meritorious Spanish community. Mendoza is intimately linked to the heart of our people. Solidarity with our efforts, identified with our ideals, part of our sacrifices linked with glory and honor, our rapid progress, and noble part of our dreams of brotherhood, peace and work.
