Few provinces have such extensive and affable coasts... countless small ports or radars have sheltered for more than 60 years, places that emerged around the port and the coast itself.
The vast province of Buenos Aires is one of the most characteristic territories of the Argentine soil. When we say "Argentina" we unfailingly say "Buenos Aires", we mean perfect soils, almost without decline, full of wheat, corn, soya beans... and unbeatable cattle...
Originally a flat, treeless territory occupied by brave, warlike aboriginal groups that appeared and dispersed at great speed across the vast pampas. It was Juan Díaz de Solís who first tried some names for these places, calling the estuary of the River Plate Mar Dulce.
This region of the Argentine Republic is located in the central-western area, land of the aborigines and the last place of the Inca empire that extended its roads to the current province of Mendoza.
The name indicates the essence of its territory... "totally surrounded by rivers", except for the missionary town of Bernardo de Irigoyen which is the only dry border in this geographical region of Argentina.
In a territory as vast as Argentina, it is not too difficult to define the particularity of each geographical region. In the case of the northeast, we can highlight the versatility of the landscape that passes from the jungle in strata on the banks of the rivers to the thorny mountain in the western Chaco.
Who only knows some isolated facts about Argentina, will never imagine the wonderful contrasts that this region of our country presents...the colours of the earth and the hills are confused in intense reds, dazzling ochres, permanent blue skies
Of dubious origin, many say that it was Magellan's chronicler who first used the term Patagonia in his writings, back in 1520.
Located in the eastern centre of the Argentine Republic, the mountainous destinations in the province of Córdoba and Buenos Aires are developed. All of them are Mediterranean, and their backbone is the Palaeozoic mountain range, which has been rejuvenated by the almost explosive rise of the Andes. In the particular case of Cordoba, it is impressive for its majesty.
