Capital of the province by the same name, the seldom explored Argentine city of Santa Fe surprises travellers with its eclectic array of impressive attractions. From intriguing downtown museums to stunning colonial buildings and pristine natural waterways, here is a list of 6 fascinating places to visit in Santa Fe:

Santa Fe La Vieja Archaeological Park

History buffs will enjoy this important archeological site which was home to the original city of Santa Fe until it relocated some 50 kilometers (30 miles) south in the 1660s. Original constructions such as churches, plazas, city hall, and a myriad of grandiose residences are on display to give visitors an insight into how folks lived during the early days of Spanish colonization.

Rosa Galisteo de Rodriguez Museum

Art enthusiasts should pay a visit to the Rosa Galisteo de Rodriguez Museum, a fine arts museum endearingly named after the mother of its founder back in 1918. Set in a charming edifice overlooking a local park, the museum holds some 2,500 works of exquisite contemporary Argentine art.

Juan de Garay Park

As the city’s premier recreational park, Juan de Garay sees a flurry of activity on weekends as locals come to relax among lagoons and flower gardens or get involved in a friendly game of football. During the summer it gets particularly exciting as festivals, art exhibits, and events are held in the evenings.

Visit the Suspension Bridge and Riverfront

An obligatory stop in Santa Fe, be sure to stroll the waterfront’s costanera to see town’s iconic suspension bridge, Puente Colgante, and great views of the coast.

At night, the bridge is illuminated with colored lights, but day or evening this is one of the most beautiful places in town. Lots of locals hang out in the recently renovated areas and rollerblade, skateboard, cycle, or walk their dogs along the promenade. On Sundays, artisans and antique dealers ply their wares and food vendors set up shop for the crowds. Have a drink nearby with views of the palm tree-lined river or take a walk to see the lighthouse.

Cruise the Paraná River

Book a boat trip to cruise the Paraná River from the port in Santa Fe.

You can hop onboard a catamaran with the Costa Litoral company and travel through the islands or take a trip to the nearby city of Paraná. You’ll hear interesting information about the river from a guide and get to see the town’s iconic suspension bridge from a new angle. Sunset cruises are a great option for a glimpse of the city from the water in the evenings and photographs of the light shimmering off the riverfront. The boat has a bar and canteen serving up hot and cold food during your journey.
