Privileged with a geography of fertile meadows, streams and streams , Santa Rosa de Calchines is located in the tourist corridor of the Santafesina coast. The land of water and so l, as it is known in the province, is within the Garay department, separated by a short distance from the provincial capital. Natural, quiet and set by a pleasant warmth, it is inhabited by people who have managed to transform themselves into skilled fishermen and slaughtered land workers.

Santa Rosa is situated on the riverside albardón, on the banks of the riacho Calchines, on RP 1. It is a captivating destination for those families in big cities who want to enjoy the tranquility almost non-existent elsewhere.
Clean and tidy streets, humble hamlet, a central plaza full of color, cozy and comfortable cabins. Inserted in natural spaces, island landscapes, draw the face of the land of water and sun.

This allows tourists to enter into the contrast between calm, green and rivers, and great cultural events, movida and gastronomy of urban centers.
On Sundays, the local Culture and Tourism Secretaries organise different activities on the beach. Volleyball , players for the little ones and a drink bar are some of the proposals.
The Islero Festival is what we mentioned at the beginning. But there are also other important events in the town, such as the Rio Varied Fishing Competition, which attracts fishermen from the most diverse destinations.

The place is located on RP 1, approximately eight kilometers north of the town centre. Boasting its architectural appearance of the early twentieth century, elegant and imposing. La Estancia acquires its importance and recognition from the 1980s. For those years, it was the scene of two significant national films: “Death of the Count”, and “The Night of Crime”. The latter was jointly produced by Argentina Televisora Color (ATC), Canal 13 de Santa Fe and Canal 5 de Rosario.
A park surrounds the mansion, flanked by an old grove. The place overflows with greens , in all its shades. Nature invades everything, with a very notorious grace. In this house, the story is still alive, and it is breathed at every step.
