    This is an amazing place for relaxing and being in contact with nature. A guide will take you to the most beautiful places of the region and you will be able to fish and cook - a la estaca - your own food, especially dorado and boga.You will stay at a cottage in the middle of an island by the moonlight. So, if you are an adventurous person and you love nature this is a great opportunity! I've been there and I simply loved it!!

    Convent gardens

    The Church and Convent of San Francisco is Santa Fe´s most impressive building. It was built in 1680 and contains a lovely old church and beautiful gardens. There is no entrance charge, though like the other museums in Santa Fe, a small donation of a couple of Pesos is suggested.

    Museo Etnografico y Colonial Juan de Garay

    Model of the main square in Santa Fe

    The name of the museum is a bit of a mouthful, but it basically tells the story of Santa Fe from the time the area was first inhabited, thousands of years ago, right up to the present day. We spent about 10 minutes with our Spanish dictionaries on the first three exhibit is, trying to work out what what was being said. The most interesting parts for us were the models of the current city and of Santa Fe la Vieja, the former city, which was 80 km north along the river. Like the nearby museum and the church, this museum is open in the morning and late in the afternoon, but closes at siesta time, much like everything in the city really.

    grafity about abused women
    2 more images

    As I was walking along the costanera after the lighthouse I noticed a wall full of graffities. I went closer to see because it’s a kind of art I like to see and I was surprised with the subject of the paintings. Every graffity on the wall has to do with women abuse (from husbands, bosses etc)

    Rio Parana and costanera

    la costanera

    Like in Rosario, the first thing I did when I arrived at the city was to go down to waterfront and walk along the la costanera, the riverfront of Santa Fe along rio Parana.

    Here in Santa Fe everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) in the afternoon stroll up and down the riverfront, drinking mate, chatting and flerting. You can relax just watching the river, admire the most beautiful women in the world, or just walk along the costanera, taking photos at the lighthouse, see some interesting graffities and forget about your daily life back home!!

    When I went down to costanera I noticed the big red bridge that is some kind of landmark for Santa Fe and connects the city with the other side of the river where is the University. The bridge is called Puente Colgante.

    old car model

    I don’t have a car and in fact I hate them :) I like to walk in pedestrian streets but in Santa Fe I had the opportunity to take some photo of some interesting old models or some nice cute small mini cooper. It’s amazing what a tourist does when there’s nothing else to do in a city! lol

    colonial buildings

    I’ve noticed some colonial buildings in short distance of plaza 25 de Mayo but most of them were part of the neo parisian building boom in the 19th century. Nothing really special to see as you walk under the sun. I was too tired, I wanted a beer and La costanera was much better! :)

    pedestrian San Martin street

    san martin street

    During the morning the locals come to San Martin street for shopping. It’s a pedestrian street in the center of the city and hopefully, I didn’t see any souvenir shop around (there are no tourists anyway). If you are interested in football tshirts though you can find almost every tshirt of local or national football teams in better prices than in Buenos Aires. I bought the original tshirt of Argentina national football team in the half price of the one in BsAs. Some small cafes along San Martin street will wash down the heat.

    Back to the beginning

    Old Argentina look-alike

    Visiting the monastery and the adjacent area is a must for somebody who wants to understand the roots of Santa Fe and why it developed the way it did. The monastery is one of the oldest buildings in the city, well renovated and surrounded "inside out" by glamorous landscaping. All the components make for a great introduction to how life used to be in Argentina at the beginning of the colonization.
    Nearby one can see a replica of the Roman Coliseum or rather the specific way of preserving a part of a building from falling down and tearing the rest of the structure apart.
