Santa Rosa

Altitude: 157 meters/515 feet, Population: 102,000, Telephone Code: 02954

 

Almost half of Santa Rosa’s population is of Italian descent, which they proudly boast is the reason for the town’s decidedly laid back atmosphere and long lunch hours. Although there’s nothing much here to interest a tourist in this provincial capital, it is a pleasant place to spend a day if you’re passing through. Santa Rosa serves as a good base to visit the two natural reserves nearby: Parque Lugo and Parque Nacional Lihuel Calel. Its strategic position at the center of Argentina means accessibility is not a problem.

Although even as a transport hub, Santa Rosa remains a tranquil place. Open plazas, quiet streets and low-rise buildings makes the town seem like a place left to its own devices. Santa Rosa was not granted provincial status until 1951, giving it the air of a place waiting to be discovered. Santa Rosa has all the necessary amenities in a pretty package, certainly ready to welcome those seeking to delve deep into the life of La Pampa.
