This is a great way to see central Rosario on runnable, wide avenues passing the key sights and neoclassical, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco architecture of Distrito Centro, plus 2-3 km around the paths of Parque Independencia, the city’s major park.
A good place to start is at the imposing Monumento Histórico Nacional a la Bandera, honoring Argentine hero Manuel Belgrano. Run for 2.5 km through the plaza and then west along Av. Córdoba — Rosario’s main commercial avenue that’s pedestrianized for seven blocks, between Plaza 25 de Mayo and Plaza Pringles — and includes several squares/plazas. Turn LEFT on Bv. Oroño, a wide, tree-shaded boulevard, and run for 1 km south to Parque Independencia. There, you can do 2-3 km on paths around the gardens and small ponds. Then, head back east toward the river for 2.5 km on the runnable Av. Pellegrini, finishing the final 2 km on the river paths– either through Parque Urquiza west of Av. Belgrano, or on the riverside sidewalk/path on the east side of Av. Belgrano.
Add-Ons: Connect with our Paraná River route for up to 6 km through several riverside parks.
