Exploring the Culture of Argentina
Argentina is rich in both indigenous and European cultures. It’s the origin of the tango. It’s a capital of fútbol. And, its natural wonders are stunning, from the Perito Moreno Glacier, Iguazú Falls, and the Serranía de Hornocal, or Rainbow Mountain.
In the culture of Argentina, mouth-watering asado, or barbeque, is a popular Argentine. It’s even common to spot men dressed as gauchos–Argentine cowboys! Sophisticated and lively Buenos Aires offers a variety of entertainment, from the Avenida 9 de Julio—one of the widest streets in the world—to opera at the world-renowned Teatro Colón, to sipping mate (an energizing herbal brew) with friends. Argentina has large communities of foreign students and immigrants, which speaks to its diverse and ever-evolving cultures.
