The National Flag Memorial can be found in Rosario, Argentina, and only 5 blocks away from my house. It is located opposite the banks of the mighty Parana River and is surrounded by parks, bars and flea markets, and is a meeting place for the inhabitants of this city. It is ideal for walks and also relaxing with friends and family. This particular photograph shows a beautiful sunrise through the columns of the monument.
This monument was inaugurated on June 19, 2005 which is the eve of Argentina Flag Day, as a reminder of the sacrifice young Argentine soldiers and officers made in the unequal struggle for the recovery of our Malvinas Islands on April 2, 1982. Erected to remind the entire community, if only for a moment, the reason why. The printed writing are the names of the dead, symbolizing their value to the Nation, the names are alphabetical and without hierarchy on a black marble wall. You can also see the 5 coats of arms that participated in the war. The floor of this ellipse is different from the esplanade in order to mark a separation between the inside and the outside, no mirror in the center of a circular water in which they are represented, enhancements are made of reinforced concrete and are illuminated from below, the Falkland Islands reflected by its contour. The monument is in the Parque Nacional a la Bandera (National Park of Allegiance), the website and the phone are the ETUR Rosario.
The store at Edificio La Favorita was originally founded by two brothers from Asturias called Ramon and Angel Garcia and was the starting point of the famous store that for years was a popular meeting point for the people of Rosario. Equipped with the most modern fittings of the time, including elevators, telephone, heating, and curved glass windows, the building was designed by Arman, Dams and Todeschini in 1926 and built by the Candia and Isella Construction Company in 1929. The building still showcases the work of those visionary pioneers: it has a baroque staircase with huge vases on either side, an imposing three-story hall and a large stained glass skylight in the style of the top Parisian department stores at the time. On the top floor there are two large terraces, and the building is topped by a beautiful dome that can be spotted from afar. The main entrance on the corner has a large iron and glass canopy on which you can clearly see two figures, one of an angel and the other a female figure with the inscription "La Favorita". In its time, the company had buying offices in Madrid and Paris. Unfortunately, nowadays it's mission impossible to get permission to enter the building, which is currently occupied by the Chilean Falabella company. After a long, drawn-out process I finally managed to get hold of a couple of photos, showing the wide Baroque staircase and the stained glass skylight. Of the four existing elevators for the public, only one has been automated and the other three are out of service due to lack of elevator operators.
The Mariano Moreno Bus Station was designed by architects Chanourdie and Micheletti. It was built by the L. Falcone Construction Company. It was originally the Provincial Railway Station of Santa Fe.

It is located just 30 blocks from the center of the city opposite the Patio de la Madera resort. This bus station provides daily services to some of the country's provincial capitals and major cities. Also, it has has daily departures to neighboring countries and combinations to Peru. The highest frequency of travel, with departures every 30 minutes, is recorded in the Rosario-Buenos Aires route whose length is 4 hours. The bust of Dr. Mariano Moreno was created in 1957 by the sculptor Erminio Blotta (1892-1976), and is located in the octagon of the Bus Terminal in Rosario.

It provides countless services such as health, WiFi access, medical assistance, bank, taxis, private security, public telephones, local shops of all kinds, parking, luggage storage service, and more...

As Sunday looked like it was going to be a really splendid day, we decided to go with my daughter, my son and one of my granddaughters to the coast to see the river and walk in the sun after many days of forced enclosure. When we passed the statue of the Black Olmedo sitting on the bench, my daughter could not think of a better thing than to make me sit down and take several photos, and really I was tempted so much by both things that the people there told me that I couldn´t stop laughing, so I have trimmed those photos to upload along with several other of his characters and to collaborate with Gisselle corner. I have included the phone number and the website of Rosario ETUR for all inquiries: +54 (341) 4802230 and the web: Www.Rosarioturismo.Com

It has been declared a World Heritage Site, and at present is the seat of the board of the National University of Rosario. Inside you can find ornaments and figures made by Domenico Fontana and Luis Levoni, ceramic works by Buxadera Salvador and stained glass, paintings and decorations by Giuseppe Carmignani, with cedar doors with frames, carvings and beveled glass.

The National Historic Monument to the Flag does itself evoke an almost reverential respect, but I cannot imagine what it must feel like to pass through the doors of the Hall of Honor of American Flags with the verses in my head that I sing more loudly when I hear the Hymn: "MAY THE LAURELES THAT WE OBTAINED BE ETERNAL " and to imagine that others, not us, made it humanly possible, and even impossible, to bequeath our free and sovereign land. Under the Propylaea, and entering via Santa Fe Street, on both sides of a colonnade in the center is a large and impeccable red carpet. You can also see the windows which are displayed in all their glory, the first flags hoisted in Buenos Aires in 1936 and June 20, 1938 when June 20 was established as Flag Day. You can also see the shield, anthem and national flower of all American countries, in addition to those of Spain and Italy. The embroidered flag, which was donned by the rosarinas ladies on the opening day of the Monument - June 20, 1957 - is highlighted, in addition to the Shield of the OAS (Organization of American States), the flag donated by the Argentine Army in the 50th anniversary of the Monument´s inauguration, a replica of the Caravel Colombina, donated by the Institute of Hispanic Culture of Madrid on October 12, 1975, a glass box with soil brought from the Cook Fawns, Province Of Palencia. Spain, birthplace of the father of General San Martin. Two bronze medals commemorating the raising of the flag and it´s subsequent blessing, a replica of the sword that was used in the battles for independence Manuel Belgrano, Martin Guemes and Rudecindo Alvarado. The official flag fluttering in the Falkland Islands from April 2 to June 14, 1982, a chest with earth from the house of Christofer Colombus - Genoa, Italy, and the other containing the father's hometown of Don Manuel Belgrano-Empire, Italy. How is it then possible to not feel respect and excitement on entering this place.
