Rosario, our city

Rosario is a city in eastern Argentina, in Santa Fe Province, a port on the Paraná River. The city is one of the largest in the country; it is the shipping center for northeastern Argentina. Ocean steamers reach the city via the Paraná River. The port is subject to silting and must be dredged periodically. Exports include wheat, flour, hay, linseed and other oils, corn, sugar, lumber, meats, hides, and wool. Manufactures include flour, sugar, meat products, and other foodstuffs. The National University of Rosario (1968) is here. Rosario was founded in 1725 but remained a small village until 1850, when it was established as a port of entry. The city is modern, with boulevards, parks, and attractive suburbs.
