The provincial capital La Plata is located 50 kilometers from Buenos Aires. In 1882, a modern city with architectural concerns emerged. The most beautiful walk through the city starts at the Plaza Moreno where the cathedral is located, a New Gothic work from 1885. The monumental windows are reproductions of the church windows of Chartres in France. A visit to the Museode Ciencias Naturales is worthwhile, especially for its unique collection of fossil mammals.

San Antonio de Areco
Time seems to stand still in San Antonio de Areco. In the 16th century, the entire region was given to Spanish conquistadors and later divided into estates where horses and cattle were bred. In the museum village Parque Criollo y Museo Ricardo Güiraldes, several buildings that the poet Ricardo Güiraldes immortalized in his Don Segundo Sombra have been preserved .
Río Paraná delta begins 30 kilometers north of Buenos Aires . The delta, which covers approximately 2,600 km2, is a vast island world. The southernmost arm of the river is the Río Luján , where the left bank lies before its mouth in the city of Tigre. An approximately 100 km2 protected nature reserve stretches between the rivers Luján and Paraná: Paraná de las Palmas . Boat trips and walks led by scientists are possible, ending the day with an overnight stay at the campsite. ( address : Viamonte 610, 1st floor)
