Where Salta still had a colonial vibe, Rosario definitely had that small city feel to it. I felt instantly at home here and realised that the city had some similarities with Santiago, Chile (which we loved).
They both have a river. We walked along the Constanera (waterfront) that stretches 15K along the city. We didn’t walk the whole 15K, but we did walk along most of it. There is a lot to see here.
There were museums and galleries to visit.
A trip to Rosario would be incomplete without a visit to the Monumento Nacional a La Bandera. It is huge. Manuel Belgrano, who designed the Argentine flag, rests in a crypt beneath this colossal stone obelisk built where the blue-and-white stripes were first raised.
