THE NAME ARGENTINA

It comes from the Latin term “argentum”, which means silver. The origin of this name goes back to the first voyages made by the Spanish conquerors to the Río de la Plata. The survivors of the shipwrecked expedition mounted by Juan Díaz de Solís found indigenous people in the region who gave them silver objects as presents. The news about the legendary Sierra del Plata - a mountain rich in silver - reached Spain around 1524. As from this date, the Portuguese named the river of Solís, Río de la Plata (River of Silver). Two years later the Spanish used the same name. The National Constitution adopted in 1853 included the name “República Argentina” (Argentine Republic) among the official names to designate the government and the country’s territory.

LOCATION, AREA AND FRONTIERS

Located in South America, and thus, in the southern hemisphere, Argentina has an area of almost 3.8 million square kilometers, 2.8 on the continent – approximately 54% are plains (grasslands and savannahs), 23%, plateaus, and the other 23%, mountains - and the remainder in the Antarctic. It is 3,800 Km. long and is located between latitude 22º and 55º. Its border with Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia and Chile has a perimeter of 9,376 Km, while the territory bordered by the Atlantic Ocean is 4,725 Km long.

GEOGRAPHY

Argentina’s main characteristic is the enormous contrast between the immense eastern plains and the impressive Andes mountain range to the west. This is the frontier with Chile and boasts the highest peak in the Western hemisphere: the 6,959 m high Aconcagua. From Jujuy to Tierra del Fuego (where it is located the most austral city in the world: Ushuaia), the Andes present marvelous contrasts: the Northwest plateaus, the lake region, the forests and glaciers in the Patagonia.To the north, Chaco is a forested area linked to rivers Bermejo, Salado and Pilcomayo.Between the Paraná and Uruguay rivers, the Argentine Mesopotamia (provinces of Entre Ríos, Corrientes and Misiones) is formed by low hills, where pools and marshlands evidence the ancient courses of these great rivers. In some places within the subtropical rain forest, there are fissures which provide such spectacular phenomena as the Iguazú Falls in the Province of Misiones, where the water falls reaching 80 meters high. Framed in a woodland landscape, they have been declared Human Patrimony by UNESCO and they are among the present seven wonders of the world.

The Pampas, in the center of Argentina, is the largest and best-known area of plains. Agricultural and livestock activities are performed in this area, which includes the province of Buenos Aires, the northeast of La Pampa, the south of Córdoba (Cordoba City is the second Argentine city regarding population density) and south of Santa Fe. To the south, the plains give way to small hills in Tandil and de la Ventana, and to the west, to the Córdoba hills.

In the Province of Cordoba, the Jesuits, that during the Colonial Period erected several estancias also declared Human Patrimony, had the impulse to found the first University in this spot. The main leaders of the country were educated among its walls. Towards the south, from the Andes to the sea, there appear the sterile and stony plateaus of Patagonia, swept by the wind during most of the year. The Atlantic coast, lined with high cliffs, forms massive indentations like the Peninsula Valdés, with its spectacular and unique colonies of sea animals (whales and penguins). And, in the mountain range the Continental Ice as well as Perito Moreno Glacier are found. Among its spots, cities like San Martin de Los Andes and national parks can be found.

Cuyo and the Northeastern Zone: Argentina is the fifth worldwide wine producer and among its stock some of the most precious grapevines in the world are found. Amid them, the Malbec, just like the tango, is the one that defines us in the taste of wine lovers. Even though this is a French grapevine, it found in our climate and soil that there is no better place for it in the rest of the world. About the white wines, the Torrontes grapevine found in the Province of La Rioja its place in the world.

The most outstanding feature of Argentina is the diversity of climates, landscapes, ecosystems, and culture it contains, defining an array of beauty and contradictions that has always attracted and dazzled travelers.

CLIMATE

The country’s territory offers a wide variety of climates: subtropical in the North, sub-Antarctic in the southern Patagonia, and mild and humid in the Pampas plains. Media temperature from November to March is 23° C, and 12° C from June to September.

POPULATION

Although, together with Brazil, it is one of the most densely populated countries in South America, Argentina shows wide, uninhabited territories in contrast with its big industrial and tourist cities, among which, of course, its capital, Buenos Aires, is included. Argentina’s current population is more than 40 million inhabitants, almost half of which live in the city and the province of Buenos Aires (Buenos Aires City ranks as the 9th biggest city in the world). Population density calculated on a national basis is 13 inhabitants per square kilometer.

95% of the population is white and most are descendants of Italians and Spaniards. As a result of the massive European immigration, the white and Indian half-castes were slowly reduced and at the present they amount only to 4.5% of the population. The pure indigenous population - Mapuches, Collas, Tobas, Matacos and Chiriguanos - amount to 0.5% of the population.

LANGUAGE

Spanish is the official language of the Argentine Republic. In Buenos Aires, some “lunfardo” expressions -city slang - are used.

RELIGION

There is complete religious freedom in Argentina, although the official religion is Roman Catholic. Other religions practiced in the country are Protestant, Jewish, Moslem, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox and others.

CURRENCY

The official Argentine currency is the Peso.

CONSTITUTION AND GOVERNMENT

Argentina consists of 23 provinces plus a federal district, the City Buenos Aires. The Argentine Constitution establishes a Republic under a representative and federal system, and three separate branches of government: executive, legislative and judicial. The executive branch is exercised by the President and Vice-president of the Nation, elected for a 4-year term, and who may be reelected for a single additional term. The legislative branch is bicameral: the Senate (composed of three senators from each province and from the City of Buenos Aires) and the House of Representatives (composed of representatives elected directly and in proportion to each district’s population). The judicial branch “is vested in the Supreme Court and lower courts of justice”. Each province has adopted its own Constitution in accordance with the National Constitution, to rule its administration. The current National Constitution dates from 1853. Nevertheless, it was amended in 1860, 1898, 1957 and 1994. The last amendment made in August 1994, allows the President’s reelection for an additional term.

TWO HISTORIC DATES

May 25, 1810. The first “Gobierno Patrio” or National Government Assembly was constituted.

July 9, 1816. Proclamation of Independence by the “Provincias Unidas del Río de la Plata”.

NATIONAL EMBLEMS

The Argentine flag has three horizontal stripes: the one in the middle is white and bears the golden sun, and the two outside stripes are light blue. The national flower is the ceibo, and the national stone is the manganese spar (rodocrosita) or “Inca Rose”.
