Macro – Museum of Contemporary Arts Rosario

It is the most important collection of contemporary art in Argentina. The Macro owes its creation to the desire to display some key artworks by contemporary artists, such as the etchings of the “Juanito Laguna” series by Antonio Berni (rewarded at the Venice Biennale in 1962), The “Concepto Espacial” (1951) by Lucio Fontana, works by Di Tella and other local artists the 60’s, alongside comtemporary Argentinean and international artists.

The Macro is located on the river front on the site of the former grain silos known as the Silos Davis, which were part of the port infrastructure during the early twentieth century.

Teaching English in Rosario

English-speaking jobs in Rosario

Teaching English may not be your best option in Buenos Aires as there is a lot of competition from Argentines who are well educated and have good commands of English and also from native English speakers who are tempted to live the South American adventure and decide to live in Buenos Aires for a while.

However, the competition is not so fierce in Rosario. All in all, teaching English at a school or institute doesn’t pay much but if you are looking for a temporary solution (say 2/3 months), it could be a good option especially in Rosario.

I have decide to compile a quick list of the some of the English language schools in Rosario, Argentina to help you in your job hunting.

Best of luck in your search!

PS: Do a little bit of research on each one of them and then get in touch with them directly to see if they are looking for staff.  I cannot make any recommendations as I don’t know any of them personally and don’t know their recruitment  process but I thought this list could be handy if you are looking for an English-speaking job in Rosario. Be creative in your approach, they may not need someone to teach but may need help with admin tasks or sales, you never know.

PPS: No need to send me your CV or details of your job search; I am not a recruitment agent.

Rosario Walking Tours – Zone 1 – River

Posted | 2 comments

Things to do in Rosario- Walking Tours

Rosario could be divided up in 4 areas and depending on your interest or the weather you could explore a zone in half a day.

Zone 1 – River walk

This is my personal favourite! I invite you to discover Rosario and its river.

You could start the walk near the National Flag Memorial ( make sure to take the time to go up the Memorial and admire the vast sandbanks across the city), then down to the Fluvial Port. There, you can stop for a quick coffee or a bit to eat at one of the cafes alongside the river. Then follow the river, pass the Tourist Information Centre and the beautiful building of the Customs. Then you will reach the lower part of the Spanish Park and its brand new promenade, complete with the design museum, a children’s play area and an outdoor skating rink.

Up the steps will be the upper part of the Spanish Park, with another nice selection of cafes and restaurants (most of the them with terrace overlooking the river), the perfect spot for lunch, for an afternoon drink or a refreshing ice cream.

Our walk will finish at the former grain silos ( Silos Davis) transformed into the City Modern Art Museum. It is worth mentioning these 2 nice establishments, Queens River and Davis.

Here are some of the highlights of this walk: (Fluvial Port, Spanish Park, Steps of the Spanish Park and the Modern Art Museum (MACRO))
