It is the second city of Argentina, in size and economic activity. Strategically located on the shores of the Parana River, its port is of vital importance for Mercosur. But at the national level, its importance is not only economic but cultural as it is the birthplace of famous musicians and other producers of culture who achieved fame worldwide.
It is a city with no record of foundation, name of the founder, nor precise date of birth. It came through the slow but steady growth of settlers who were creating their humble homes, ranches of mud and straw, which arose around the modesty of a chapel, in a farm environment, mostly populated by cattle and mules that were marketed in Upper Peru. The chapel is the one of Our Lady of the Rosary, built on lands of Captain Santiago Montenegro, where the parish priest of Maestro Antonio Alzugaray, for 1731, launched the functions of parish, and where they were grouping these humble homes to go up forming a village.
Nowadays, Rosario is a city that invites you to be traveled. Its architecture deserves a separate chapter; there are areas where it has remained intact in the style of early century. The boulevards and extensive parks give its distinctive style of big city. Walk along the cliffs over the river at sunset is a classic, and the flag monument is the ideal starting point for any trip on foot through the center.
Rosario has an important tourism infrastructure, and its nightlife is one of the most dynamic of the country. Like Buenos Aires, this city never sleeps.
