Rosario is the largest city in the province of Santa Fe. It is the third largest city in Argentina by its population with a growing and important metropolitan area.
One of its main attractions includes the
neoclassical architecture that has been retained over the centuries in hundreds of residences, houses and public buildings.
Even though the city did not have a clear foundation date Rosario was founded in 7 October 1793 with a local population of 457 inhabitants. On February 27, 1812, General Manuel Belgrano raised the newly created Argentine flag on the shores of the Paraná river, for the first time. Because of this, Rosario is known as the "Cradle of the Argentine Flag". The National Flag Memorial marks the occasion.
