Santa Fe Things to Do

    She was the virreina (wife of the Viceroy) of Rio de la Plata in spanish times, in the XVIII century. She is buried in Buenos Aires. She was like a saint and loved to help poor people.

    This is one of the main toruists attractions of Santa Fe. In the past it occupied a whole block but today is smaller. It dates from the end of the XVII century, although later on it suffered modifications.

  • Calle San Martin

    This street is the main one for visitors, it is pedestrian and along it there are many houses with a plaque saying that there are nacional monuments. I took some pictures of the most beautiful houses and the plaques with the explanation.

  • Catholic Cathedral

    It was in the central square. I went in but it was closed, nevertheless there was an entry from the back. Some people were praying. I joined them for a while.

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...

  • San Francisco Convent & Church

    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...

    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...

  • some interesting grafity on the wall

    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)

    more
  • Rio Parana and 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,...

  • some nice cars

    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

    more
  • Colonial architecture

    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! :)

    more
  • pedestrian 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...

  • Historical Museum & Governor´s House

    The historical museum is housed in one of the city´s oldest houses, a beautful building near the main square, Plaza 25 de Mayo. On display are portraits of the various governor´s of the town, as well as furniture and ornaments from the times when the house was inhabited.

  • Back to the beginning

    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...

Santa Fe Transportation

  • Parana to Santa Fe

    Santa Fe is about an hour by bus from Parana. It costs 3 pesos for a single ticket and buses leave frequently throughout the day. We travelled with the Fluviales bus company, who, I think, have the most connections on this route but there are other companies too. The journey goes under the River Parana through a huge tunnel connecting the cities.

  • bus

    Santa Fe is about 475km away from Buenos Aires and 170km from Rosario. There are buses from Buenos Aires (6hours) but I traveled there by bus from Rosario (2hours bus ride in a normal bus) and the day after I took the bus to Iguazu Falls (that was a looong bus ride). The bus terminal has different booths for different bus companies like every city...
