The main attraction in Argentina is the landscape: the fertile plains of the Pampa and the big cities of Buenos Aires (the capital situated on the banks of the Río de la Plata, where among others you can visit two important places associated with the story of Evita Peron: the Casa Rosada in Plaza de Mayo, residence of the President of the Republic, with the famous balcony from which the young Argentinian politician spoke to her fellow citizens, and the Cementerio de la Recoleta where she is buried). Don’t miss Córdoba, the heart of the country with its famous Camino Real (the Royal Road); Patagonia with its renowned Tierra del Fuego, the city of Ushuaia, the Iguazú Falls and the impressive Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Gorge); the Gran Chaco area, connected to the Rivers Bermejo, Salado and Pilcomayo with the cities of Chaco and Formosa, characterized by cattle farms where the tasty Argentinian meat comes from; and lastly Cuyo (land of the deserts), the Andes mountains with Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western hemisphere.
Among the big cities, Rosario, Mendoza, La Plata, Tucumán, Mar del Plata, Salta, Santa Fe and Bahía Blanca are all well worth visiting.
The UNESCO World Heritage sites are particularly noteworthy: the Perito Moreno glacier, the Valdés Peninsula, the Iguazù Falls National Park, the Quebrada di Humauaca and the Misiones Jesuíticas de los Guaraníes (San Ignacio Mini, Santa Ana, Nuestra Señora de Loreto and Santa María la Mayor).
