There are also a whole host of attractive little towns where traditional life has been immaculately preserved. It is this region, outside the city of Buenos Aires, that the romanticised symbol of the Argentine gaucho was born. This American-indian cowboy figure is characteristic of the pampas and marks the region as the agricultural heart of the country.

There are several nature reserves and national parks in the region which showcase an extremely varied mixture of flora and fauna.
