Top 10 Things to do in Rosario, Argentina

January 12, 2018 Layne Dawes

This urban waterworld is a fast-growing city tucked into a bend of the Parana River about 186 miles northwest of Buenos Aires. Slip into a kayak or take a cruise for the best river views, or hit the city center, bustling with discos, theaters, pedestrian malls, restaurants and parks popular with cyclists. A national monument on the riverbank honors the city's historic role as the site where the Argentine flag was first flown.

The place can be considered as a masterpiece considering average local arquitecture. As a kid I did have the priviledge to stay in that theatre as my playing ground. (one of my relatives worked there). There is also an annex in which sculptures are displayed. Go to the upper balcony. The view from up there is amazing.

Reviewed By RihariNZ - Christchurch, New Zealand

This stunning monument to the Argentinian flag is something to absolutely have to experience. The tonnes of marble have been crafted into an exquisite location, and each time I go I find myself noticing new intricacies in the carven work. The elevator to the top is absolutely worth doing and gives a stunning view.

La Isla de los Inventos

Reviewed By arielmc - los angeles

OK, perhaps i've not been to every children's museum, but i've been to a lot of them on 3 different continents...and this one is AWEEEEOME! The artistry of the stations astounded me. It involves the children directly into activities like sawing, soldering, painting, paper making, clay throwing. The kids build onto the stations for other kids to build on to after they leave, creating a sense of community and belonging which i loved. All the people working here were wonderful with my kids. They do speak spanish - and i'm not sure what it will be like with non-spanish speakers.

Basilica Catedral de Nuestra Senora del Rosario

Reviewed By Kanan A - Penang Island, Malaysia

We arrived on a Sunday and my partner expressed a desire to attend a church service. That's how we ended up here, after our visit to the Bandera Memorial nearby. Like most Catholic churches, this one is also quite impressive. Although the glitz is fairly moderate, the building is interesting with many domes and arches, and the acoustics were awesome.
There is a statue of Jesus lying in a glass box. After the service several people stood or kneeled with their hands on the glass. Outside on the steps there were several people in need asking for donations.
