Boulevard Nicasio V. Oroño (or Boulevard Oroño) is an important street of the City of Rosario, Province of Santa Fe, Argentina. It is a two-way avenue that runs from north to south through the center of city, from the avenue at the Parana River embankment to the municipal limits.
It unofficially limits the central area of town in conjunction with the river and Pellegrini Avenue. When it reaches Pellegrini Avenue it splits the enormous Independencia Park but this time without a central island. The boulevard’s trajectory through the central part of town has historical houses and mansions belonging to rich families that, in some cases, have been transformed into institutions such as schools, and private clinics.
The center island (absent between Pellegrini and 27 de Febrero avenues) is large, lined with palm trees and, starting from 27 de Febrero Avenue, has a slightly narrow bike path. The Boulevard was inaugurated in the year 1868 under the name of Boulevard Santafesino, as part of a program to improve the city views on the part of the new City Council (created in 1862) as it already had 23,000 inhabitants and included the opening of the Boulevard Argentino (later. Pellegrini Avenue).
The boulevard was initially 18 blocks long and was chosen by many high-class families to have their mansions built on, some of which are still there. Its name was changed for Nicasio Oroño, a Rosario Major and Governor of Santa Fe until his death in 1868.
Avenida 9 de Julio is an important avenue of Buenos Aires City, the capital of Argentina. Its 140 m-width makes it one of the widest avenues in the world. Its name was given to commemorate the day of Argentinean Independence, July 9, 1816.
The above is the only street or avenue in Buenos Aires City that does not change its name when crossing Rivadavia Avenue.
It runs from the French Embassy to the north to Plaza Constitution to the south, at approximately 1 Km from the banks of the River Plate.
Among the many ornamental plants of this avenue there is a line of Phoenix canariensis.
Lavalle and Libertad Streets
In the XVIII century, this zone was known as ‘Zamudio’s hole’. The word ‘Hole’ used to be applied to empty plots. Zamudio was the Basque owner of a neighboring farm. In those days, there was a small lake and a brook that run along Libertad Street and turned to flow to the river where Viamonte Street is today.
In 1822, where the Law Courts are now, there was an arsenal which was the place where a bloody revolt took place against President Juarez Celman in 1890.
Juan Galo Lavalle was a politician and army officer that took part in the battles for independence. A direct descendant of the Conquistador of Mexico, Hernán Cortés, Lavalle was born in Buenos Aires in 1797 and died fighting against Governor Juan Manuel de Rosas in 1841.
The above monument was inaugurated in 1887. It was sculptured by the Uruguayan Pietro Costa and it is on top of a column 18 m tall.

At present, it covers 307 cultivated hectares, 17 Km in roads and 82 expansion hectares. This symbol of man’s push into the desert is a characteristic of Mendoza inhabitants in their effort to improve their quality of life. The park main entrance is emphasized by its gates which were built in 1909 and are crowned by the figure of a Condor and the Province of Mendoza coat of arms.

Viña del Mar, on the central coastal area of the Chilean V Region, 120 Km away from the Capital City, Santiago.
Given its land features and its residential characteristics, it has historically kept its status of beach city thanks to a proper rationalization of its landscape potential and the execution of different projects which have strengthened its title of ‘Chile’s Tourist Capital’ through country borders and time.
Santiago de Chile – It was founded by Pedro de Valdivia in 1541 under the name of Santiago de Nueva Extremadura in honor of the apostle Patron of Spain.
