Full description
Start your tour by the Monument to the Flag, the symbol of the city of Rosario. This is the place where General Manuel Belgrano first raised the flag of Argentina as a free nation in 1812. You can also see the flame of eternal fire, under which lies a casket with the ashes of the martyr San Martin, one of Argentina's liberators, who died in exile on August 17, 1850.

Continue to Plaza 25 de Mayo where you can see the Municipal Palace, the Basilica Cathedral of Rosario, the Post Office Palace, the Municipal Museum of Decorative Art, and the Snowball building. Then walk down the most important pedestrian street in the city and see buildings such as Jockey Club Rosario, the Pasaje Pam gallery, Falabella, and the Spanish Club. Pass by Sarmiento Square and then arrive at the Paseo del Siglo. This is a walk that includes eight blocks of downtown, from Oroño Boulevard to Corrientes Street.

See various historic structures which have been restored or preserved as part of the Municipal Preservation Program. Pass by the former Provincial Palace of Justice, the former Police Headquarters, the Rosario Stock Exchange, Minetti Palace, and two important squares: Plaza San Martín and Plaza Pringles.
