Rosario


Rosario

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 with Soldini, Piñeiro, and Villa Gobernador Gálvez. 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 two.
