Pampas is a region in Argentina with an area of approximately 777,000 sq km and a population of around 20,194,000.
Pampas includes the Argentine provinces of Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Santa Fe and Córdoba. The name ‘Pampas’ comes from Quechua (Native language) meaning ‘plains’, aptly describing the flat, fertile grasslands comprising this region.
Pampas, home to the ‘Gaucho’ (South American cowboys), has also remained a Spanish colony.
An important commercial centre, Buenos Aires is popular for its vibrant nightlife. Teatro Colón, the world’s largest opera house, and Casa Rosada, seat of the Argentine Government, are important tourist monuments. The Caminito Street Museum, an open-air museum also functions as an art market, and the Museo Histórico Nacional chronicles the history of Argentina. The Argentinian flag was first raised in the historical city of Rosario in Santa Fe. The biggest attraction in this city is the Monument to the Flag. El Cabildo, the town hall, is a colonial structure in Córdoba and is a must-see.
