How to Reach

By plane : There are daily flights (50 min) from Buenos Aires Aeroparque Airport, although still the more convenient way to get into the city by is to hire transport at EZE Airport. It is a four hour trip. There are also flights from/to Brazil and Uruguay.

By train: On most days there are two trains to and from Buenos Aires, although the rail condition is not very good. The trains take six hours and the price difference compared with taking a bus is not worth it. Also consider that in Argentina it is common for shantytowns to be established on old fiscal land which belonged to the national railway company.

By car: Two freeways (autopistas) connect Rosario with Buenos Aires and Santa Fe (and soon to Cordoba), although there is a part st locals take the bus, a remisse (a private Taxi service), or hail one of the many taxis roaming the area.

By bus: The most convenient way of travelling in Argentina. There are many buses departing daily from the Rosario bus station to almost every city in the country. It is also possible to travel by bus to southern Brazil, Chile, Peru, and Bolivia.

National Flag Memorial

The National Flag Memorial (Spanish, Monumento Nacional a la Bandera) in Rosario, Argentina, is a monumental complex built near the shore of the Paraná River. It was inaugurated on 20 June 1957, the anniversary of the death of Manuel Belgrano, creator of the Argentine flag, who raised it for the first time in an island on the opposite shore of the river on 27 February 1812.

The complex has a total area of about 10,000 square metres, and was built mostly using stone from the Andes, under the direction of architects Ángel Guido and Alejandro Bustillo, and the sculptors José Fioravanti, Alfredo Bigatti and Eduardo Barnes.

Independence Park

Nowadays, the well-known Independence Park of Rosario is regarded as one of the city’s most significant places in terms of tradition.
Such park is the ideal place for people who wish to relax completely. Here, not only is it possible to go for a boat ride along the lake but also to have an enjoyable time with children, since it also features the Children’s Garden (Jardín de los Niños).  
What is more, the Rural Society, the International Park, the Racetrack, the Newell’s Old Boys Colossus, or water fountains with music and flashing lights are also some of the major attractions the Independence Park has to offer.

The High Coast

The Costa Alta is a pedestrian path covering more than six hundred metres long, also known as the Walker’s Tour. It is this path that links Fontanarrosa and Galicia Streets with a T-shape static dock and with the Bajada Escauriza.Geographically, it is located in the above mentioned Bajada Escauriza, Fontanarrosa, Galicia and the Paraná River. Nowadays, it features an elevator that can hold up to thirty people.

Children's Garden

Originally, this park was meant to be a zoo. Nevertheless, the Children’s Garden changed its course and nowadays far from being a preservation area it became a Recovery Centre and Hospital for wild species. In addition, recreational and educational activities are often organised here, such as exhibitions of audio-visual material, an ecological library and an interactive museum.

The Rose Bush

There are few places so wonderful as the Rose Bush, an attraction that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Walking along its small paths full of roses, Santa Rita plants and pergolas may be perfectly pleasant.Inside the park, one of the city’s most attractive monuments can be enjoyed, the Spaniard’s Fountain (Fuente de los Españoles). Such fountain consists of approximately one thousand pieces of ceramic specially designed in Spain. It is six metres tall and its diameter is of eighteen metres.
