The city of Rosario' s boundaries are to the east
with the Paraná River; to the north with Granadero Baigorria
and Ibarlucea; to the west with Funes and Pérez; to the south

The territory of Rosario covers an area of 17,869 hectares (44,155
acres), with a population of 954,606.
After Buenos Aires and sharing second place with Córdoba, Rosario
has become one of the most important urban centers in
the country, demonstrated by its municipal, commercial, and port progress
along with its economical development. Its history, therefore,
tells us of its slow progression, as Rosario is one of the few
cities in Argentina that was not founded formally. It originated
and grew at the mouth of the Ludeña River in the Paraná. In
1725, Francisco Godoy and his people established the area under
the name of Nuestra Señora del Rosario. Around this nucleus
the city developed very gradually, and in1823 was only considered
a village by legal terms. It finally received its title as an
official city in 1852 by the provincial government. It was in this
city that General Manuel Belgrano created the Argentine flag in
1812 by the shores of the Paraná river.
Rosario has now become a modern city that has practically
buried its colonial past. Either way, we recommend a visit to the
parks to appreciate their beauty, among them Belgrano Park and
Bandera National Park. The parks border the monument which honors
General Belgrano, patriotic symbol and city's founder.
Rosario offers excellent hotels, restaurants, discotheques, and
theaters. An important connection between this city and the city
of Victoria (Entre Rios) is the viaduct constructed to unite the
Santa Fé Province. Rosario city is located in the southern region of the
province and about 320 km (200 mi) northwest of Buenos
