The birthplace of Che Guevara and Lionel Messi, Rosario revolves around the Parana River. Its port is the most important for Argentinean grain exports.
The river banks, known as Ribera, were recently recovered, giving the central region a new feel. Parks, walking trails, restaurants and snack spots, art galleries and cool little stores revitalized the region and ensured extra fun at the river beaches that are very popular in the summer.
The city is very lively with crowded bars and street festivals. Parks ensure a great quality of life and the architecture is especially rich – places like Pasaje Monroe and Ruta Modernista are lined in art deco and modern buildings.
