Rosario, city of connection
During the seventeenth century we find the first news of a settlement in the city. However, it was not until the eighteenth century that the city acquired its own administration, since it had previously depended on the governorship of Santa Fe. In the 19th century there was a great development in the city, since it became the exporting port most important in Argentina. The main land connection is the road that crosses the Rosario-Victoria Bridge, also known as Mercosur Bridge, by road, with around 40 miles of connection, it is the most important commercial route by land between the countries of Uruguay, Brazil and Chile.

The city of Rosario is known for being the locality in which the national flag was made for the first time, that's why it is also called "Cradle of the flag".

These architectural spaces are currently used for outdoor shows.
