This city, which is currently the capital of the province, was founded by Don Juan de Garay in 1573, with the mandate to “open the region to the ocean ”. The ruins of Santa Fe La Vieja, in Cayastá , can be found in the vicinity of the city 's current damero, where you can see the remains of the city founded by Garay . The name the colonizer gave this city was a tribute to the Catholic faith . Here the National Constitution was sanctioned on May 1, 1853, which put an end to civil wars and gave rise to the modern Argentine state. 5 places to visit every tourist:
This is the main square of Santa Fe Capital , has important green spaces interrupted by numerous fountains and surrounded by the most outstanding buildings in the province.
Since the transfer of the city, the property destined for the function of Casa de Gobierno was the one that originally occupied the Cabildo , located opposite the Plaza Mayor and whose building was modified for decades.
Law 1319 empowers the Provincial Executive to build a building on this property that would fulfill the functions of government in 1906, the next step is to raise the project to a tender that is finally awarded to architect Francisco Ferrari . This project concludes around 1913. One of the must-see places in the city.
In front of the square is the Cathedral church, which in 1942 was declared a National Historical Monument , carrying the title of “ All Saints ”.
Given its privileged location in front of the former Cabildo (now Government House), he presided over all the historical and political events that had religious resonance in it.
The construction in three naves dates from 1947, a work executed under the direction of Maestro Manuel Maziel . The most important changes that give it the present aspect were developed around 1833, during the administration of the Curate and Vicar Dr. Don José de Amenábar.
In 1934 the diocese was elevated to the Archdiocese and is when it received the title of Metropolitan Cathedral .
One of the places you can't miss. In San Martín y Amenábar stands the church and convent of San Francisco , whose building was built in 1660.
It is the oldest in the province , inside which real works of art are preserved such as the painting of the Blessed Virgin of 1633 of which it is said that three years after being located in this church an aqueous liquid began to flow from the eyes of the image.
This was so important that it was recorded in notarial acts.
On May 25, 1470 is located the Juan de Garay Ethnographic and Colonial Museum, which holds the remains of the city's primitive settlement in Cayastá . All Aboriginal groups that inhabited the region are also represented.
The museum shows us in its various exhibits:
The first inhabitants with samples of archaeological materials recovered in the region, ranging from prehistory to the moment of contact between Hispanic and indigenous cultures.
It stands out vessels that were made with clay to which ground ceramics were added to give greater cohesion to the piece. There are also pieces of great value corresponding to the riparian groups among which are a zoomorphic figure of a yaguareté .
In addition, archaeological testimonies exhumed in Santa Fe la Vieja founded by Juan de Garay in Cayastá have been collected, showing us the many aspects of life since the end of the sixteenth and seventeenth century.
Another place you can't miss in Santa Fe.
