History & Culture

The early inhabitants of Argentina were nomadic Indian tribes. It has been theorized that 20 major groups of indigenous people lived in the Argentina area. Europeans first occupied Argentina in 1516. They acquired a good deal of the country's best land, established estancias (ranches) and made their livelihoods through agriculture and livestock.Independence from Spain was declared in 1816 under the guidance of General San Martin. British money flowed in, as did European immigrants.

By the start of World War I, Argentina was one of the world's leading agricultural exporters, and the phrase "as rich as an Argentine" was commonly heard abroad. It is this blend of Indians, Spanish and Europeans that makes Argentina culturally unique.

The latter part of the 20th century has seen a cycle of elections, coups, countercoups and a steady erosion of the nation's wealth. The country hit bottom in the 1970s, when a series of military governments instigated the Dirty War, an anticommunist witch-hunt that caused the "disappearance" of almost 12,000 men, women and children.

In hopes of deflecting attention from their failed policies, the armed forces fought a war with Great Britain over the Falkland Islands. Argentina lost. As a result, the ruling junta of generals and admirals was ousted and Argentina returned to constitutional government. The election in 1989 of President Carlos Menem marked the century's first orderly transfer of power from one civilian government to another. While the '80s were a time of economic chaos, the '90s saw relative calm, and today the cycle continues.

Highlights of Argentina

Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is a strikingly beautiful city with European style architecture dating back to the 19th century. The culture is vivid; theatre is popular and varied, and here, as in Paris, the 'café culture' lives on, with a much-frequented café on almost every street corner.

Buenos Aires

The City's major public buildings reside in the downtown district know as Microcentro. Most of the buildings are centered around or near Plaza de Mayo. Following are a few of the notable buildings within the district.

  • Catedral Metropolitana
  • The Cathedral was built on the site of the original colonial church and finished in 1872. It is the last resting place of Argentina's most revered historical figure, General Jose de San Martin, the leading light in the country's battle for independence.

  • Casa Rosada (Pink House)
  • Home of the President of the Republic and famous for its pink exterior, statues and lush furnishings. Today the Grenadiers of San Martin in their smart red and blue uniforms stand to attention around the perimeter. The Museo de la Casa de Gobierno holds an unusual collection of personal effects of past presidents

Teatro Colón
  • Teatro Colón
  • The world's largest opera house with a capacity of 2,500 seats. It occupies an entire block on the Avenida 9 de Julio. This avenue is the City's major thoroughfare with its obelisk at the intersection of Avenida Corrientes, the traditional threatre, cinema, and nightclub district.

Shopping - Buenos Aires is a shoppers' mecca. The main shopping areas are around the microcentro, which includes popular tourist areas like the Florida and Lavelle pedestrian malls, the Plaza San Martin, and the commercial and entertainment areas of Corrientes, Códoba and the fashionable Santa Fe. Pacific Galleries is Buenos Aires' finest retail complex. It is a magnificent example of modern architecture with an attention to detail that creates a luxurious shopping experience.

Tango

The origins of the tango can be traced to the growing slums of Buenos Aires at the end of the 17th century. Cultures from around the world were meeting in the crowded and run-down tenements of the City. The new arrivals, overwhelmingly male, gathered in the bars and brothels of the port. They mixed their national music to create the tango sound. Before long, the tango gained popularity among the working class. Next the tango reached Europe and became the rage. The tango enjoyed enormous popularity during the age of Perón and fell into a lull in the 1950s, only to regain popularity at both a professional and amateur level. Many clubs and restaurants provide tango shows with tango lessons available. Throughout Buenos Aires the songs and dances of the tango can be heard performed by street musicians.

Buenos Aires is divided into barrios (neighborhoods). There are four barrios that contains most of the capital's major attractions:

Tango
  • San Telmo
  • San Telmo, south of the Plaza de Mayo, in the 1700s, was the riverside hub of the city and has retained a colonial charm. It is the birthplace of the tango and an artist's quarter when bohemians find large spaces at low rent. This district's main event is the Sunday antique market in the barrio's main square. Also in San Telmo is the Museo Histórico Nacional where Argentine history is illustrated with paintings, weapons and documents charting the struggle to survive and win independence from the Spanish. In San Telmo is the oldest church, the Jesuit Iglesia San Ignacio.

  • La Boca


  • Located along a small waterway, Riachuelo, and was settled and built up by Italian immigrants. La Boca is a sudden splash of color in Buenos Aires. Part of La Boca's color comes from the brightly painted houses of the Caminito, a favorite pedestrian walkway. The walkway was once a rail terminus and takes its name from a popular tango song. Argentina's painter Benito Quinquela Martin was a leading influence in the barrio's use of color. His home has been turned into a gallery, Museo de Bellas Artes de La Boca, for his paintings of dockworkers.

  • Recoleta
  • During the yellow-fever epidemic of the 1870s many upper-class residents relocated from San Telmo to Recoleta, which is now the city's ritziest neighborhood. This barrio is built around a giant walled cemetery, Cementerio de la Recoleta. Hundreds of ornate marble crypts, some with giant angels and reapers, contain the remains of the City's wealthiest families. Recoleta's most famous occupant is Evita Perón. Thousands visit her tomb every year, a crypt of black marble with a single rose before it.

  • Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes
  • The most significant collection of 19th and 20th century paintings by Argentine artists. It also houses classic works by Van Gogh, Renoir, Rodin and Monet.

  • Museo Municipal de Arte Hispanoamericano, Isaac Fernández Blanco
  • Contains an exceptional collection of colonial art, including silverwork, paintings, costumes and antiques.

  • Museo Nacional De Arte Decorativo
  • Located in the Errazuriz Palace, a fine example of French neoclassical architecture.

  • Palermo
  • Palermo has wide-open spaces, which has become a parkland and a major recreation source for the residents of Buenos Aires. Palermo contains the Jardin Botanico Carlos Thay (Botanical Gardens), the Jardin Zoológico (zoo), the Campo de Polo (polo grounds), the Hippódromo (racetrack) and the Planetarium.

Around Buenos Aires

Just outside of the capital are several interesting attractions worth visiting. Within commuting distance is the riverside suburb of Tigre a popular retreat on the Delta del Paraná. A walk around the town reveals many older mansions.

One of Tigre's best attractions is the Puerto de Fruitos (fruit port). A wide selection of fruit, wicker products and other handmade objects are sold at the fruit port. On weekends a large craft fair is added to the wares at the port.

Tigre is the best point of departure for exploring the Delta del Paraná and historic Isla Martín García. Ferries take visitors and residents into the 2000km maze of waterways that constitutes the Delta. The waterways offer a glimpse into the way locals live along the peaceful canals without any transport other than boats. It is possible to walk through one of the Delta neighborhoods, Tres Bocas. There are a number of good restaurants on the waterways for lunch and dinner.

After navigating the channels to Isla Martín García visitors realize that the waterways offered colonial smugglers ideal hiding places. This 2km-square island is best known as an ex-prison camp. Four Argentine presidents have been detained here. Now the Island is a park, nature reserve, recreation retreat and historical monument.

The Atlantic Coast Area

The main tourist resort on the coast is Mar del Plata, which attracts thousands of visitors during the December to March season. This beach is only 400km (250 miles) from Buenos Aires. Interesting sites at this resort includes the Torre Tanque, an 88-meter (288-ft) tower offering good views. Banquina de Pescadores is a picturesque wharf near the port with many restaurants. Mar del Plata is also the site of the largest casino in Argentina.

Other well-known resorts on the Atlantic coast include Villa Gezell, Pinamar, Miramar and Necochea. Necochea is well known for the Parque Miguel Lillo, a large green space with pinewoods beside the beach.

The Pampas Area

The Pampas is the birthplace of the legendary gaucho, the rowdy nomadic cowboy of the flat lands. There are still descendants of the gaucho working at estancias (estates/ranches) in the flat lands.

These cowboys wear the uniform of their forebears, yet their lives are pale in comparison to the legends of the original gauchos. The gauchos of the past and today are known for their horsemanship. This area is also well known for its horse-breeding and cattle estancias. Some of these estancias are now guest houses which are also open to the public for day trips. Staying at a estancia gives visitors a feel for how the Pampas used to be for the rich landowners. These estancias offer fiesta gaucha, where, after an asado (barbeque), gauchos put on riding displays.

Main Features of the Pampas

  • La Plata

La Plata is a bustling metropolis, which is home to Argentina's best natural history museum. On the City's plaza is a beautiful Gothic cathedral, which was started in 1885. The tower of this cathedral was finally completed recently.

  • South of La Plata

South of La Plata lies the Sierra de la Ventana whose scenic peaks attract many hikers and climbers. Cerro de la Ventana 1,136m (3,408 ft) is one of the most popular peaks for climbing and excursions. These scenic peaks are within the Ernesto Tornquist Provincial Park.

  • San Antonio de Areco

This village is the symbolic center of Argentina's gaucho culture. It also hosts the country's biggest gaucho celebration, Día de la Tradición. Within the village are a number of interesting museums, which illustrate the history of the Pampas and the gauchos. Works of local artists can be found in the museums and artists' studios.

  • Tandil

Tandil sits at the northern edge of the Sierras de Tandil, a 2.5 million year old mountain range worn down to gentle peaks and outcroppings. Many high-quality artisan shops are found along the cobblestone streets of downtown Tandil.

The Mesopotamia Area

  • Misiones
  • Misiones is surrounded by Brazil and Paraguay. The cultural landscape of ruined Jesuit missions draws large numbers of visitors. The grounds at the ruins of the greatest Jesuit mission at San Ignacio Miní are tastefully kept. San Ignacio has been turned into a silent and elegant park. Visitors wander amongst the old Jesuit living quarters, cemetery, and cathedral decorated with Indian carvings. Other Jesuit ruins can be found nearby, mostly overgrown by jungle.

  • Iguazú Falls
  • Located on the border with Brazil is Argentina's most outstanding natural feature, Iguazú Falls. Strung out along the rim of a crescent-shaped cliff about 2.5 miles long, some 275 individual cascades and waterfalls plummets 80k/269 feet into the gorge below. The thunderous roaring can be heard from miles away. The Falls are located in Parque Nacional Iguazú, an ecological reserve covering over 1,500 sq kilometers. The park, much of it rain forest, is teeming with unique flora and fauna, thousands of species of insects, hundreds of species of birds and many mammals and reptiles. Many of the Falls can be seen up close via a system of catwalks, which offer unmatchable views.

    The most awesome is the semicircular Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat), a deafening and dampening, yet indispensable part of the experience.



    The Devil's Throat comes closest to the experience of sailing off the edge of the earth. Launches are available to take visitors, via the river, close and into the Falls or to the Isla Grande San Martín for a closer look at the Falls without getting wet. Around the time of the full moon park rangers conduct moonlight hikes to the Falls which is a must. Take the time for a day visit to the Brazilian side of the Falls. This side will give visitors several new views, showing the immensity of the entire Falls.

  • Esterors del Iberá
  • Esterors del Iberá is an area of marshland, lagoons and lakes providing a refuge for hundreds of bird species, reptiles and mammals. There are numerous remains of Jesuit settlements in the vicinity, notable at Yapeyú.

Córdoba & the Central Sierras Areas

  • Córdoba
  • Córdoba has preserved much of its colonial past and character. By foot one can explore the most interesting of its historic buildings. The city is also an excellent base for exploring the surrounding mountains.

  • Central Sierras
  • Central Sierras does not have the dramatic scenery of the nearby Andes. Yet the area's small resort towns, and outdoor opportunities are boundless.

Mendoza & the Central Andes Areas

  • Mendoza
  • Mendoza is a good base for exploring the Andes, which can be seen in the distance from many parts of the city, and also the near-by wineries. The area produces 80% of the country's wine. Most of the wineries offer tours and tastings.

  • Central Andes
  • Near the border with Chile lies the famous Mount Aconcagua (6,995km or 22,944 ft) the highest mountain in the Western hemisphere, located within the Aconcagua National Park. Uspallata, located in a serene valley surrounded by mountains, is the best spot to start exploring the area.
