Sitting at the southern tip of South America, Argentina is home to some of the highest peaks in the Andes, stunning waterfalls and wondrous glaciers.

Sharing a border with Chile to the west and Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil and Uruguay to the north, Argentina spans 2.8 million km² and has a population of just over 41 million people. The country's capital, Buenos Aires, was founded by the Spanish in the 16th century and the country remained under Spanish rule until the 1800s.
