Santa Fe


475 kms from Buenos Aires. Here Argentine Constitution was declared in 1853 (latest reform took place in 1994) the city is linked to Paraná, the capital of the province of Entre Rios, via a tunnel of 2397 m under the Parana river. In the church of La Merced there is a painting of the Virgen de los Milagros, thought to be the oldest painted in the country. In the Museo Provincial there are exhibits related to the Jesuit missions. Rosario in Santa Fe is one of Argentine industrial centers. The Argentine national flag was first raised here, on the banks of the river Parana. Other places of interest are the Convento de San Carlos de Borromeo in San Lorenzo, a national monument and the town of Rufino, an important agricultural and cattle raising center.
