River Parana

One of the most important rivers of the country wonderfully gives shape and life to the city.

Image - La Invernada
La Invernada
Alessandro:"La Isla", like citizens like to call this place, is the favorite destiny for whoever wants to immerse into the warm waters of the Parana, feel the peace of its fauna and spent the night in a tent, out in the wild or in any of the affordable campings.
Image - Colectividades Park
Colectividades Park
Alessandro:This park has arguably the best sightseeing that you can get of the Parana from the city. Here, hundreds of families and youngsters gather every day. Go during the week for a deep breath, an inspiring walk or a serene gathering by the brook. Or rather hang out in the weekends and submerge into a sea of craftsmen, musicians, food trucks and artists.

Parque de España
Alessandro:Grab your bike, skate or rollers and head to the Parque España for a great day by the river. Climbing up and down the stairs of the park is a challenge on its own for runners.

Alessandro:Come early and take a boat to cross the Parana to La Invernada. Don't forget to look back to see Rosario unfold for you as you take distance from the shore.

Alessandro:Great place to do some beach sports and swim freely in the river. Ask the citizens to guide you to the place where the boats sail to La Invernada.

Natural Mystic Beach Bar
Alessandro:After a great day of swimming, head back to Natural Mystic. A great bar that features uplifting musicians every summer.

Inspiring Walk

Alessandro:Here it is the most iconic and historic place of Rosario.
Image - Parque Independencia
Parque Independencia
Alessandro:Get lost in this huge park, filled with a diverse flora, a nice little lake where you can rent a cycling-boat and visit the municipal garden. Beware on the weekends as this park is also home of El Coloso, the Newell's Old Boys' stadium. When the team plays at home, the park gets insanely crowded with fans.
Image - Oroño Boulevard
Oroño Boulevard
Alessandro:Keeping the tropical-islandish-like vibes, the Oroño Boulevard is a gorgeous 10-block walk.

El Rosedal
Alessandro:Next to the Parque Indepencia you'll find this beautiful park of various species of flowers.
