Many natural sites found in the country, have been protected as areas or reserves and national parks. Some of the major milestones of nature reach greater recognition in his capacity as World Heritage by UNESCO.

Spanish, Italian, Syrian-Lebanese, German, Irish, Polish and Russian immigrants provided Buenos Aires with the cultural eclecticism that distinguishes it.

Throughout the twentieth century, successive immigrations, from Latin American and Eastern countries completed the picture of Buenos Aires as a cosmopolitan city where people live in different cultures and religions.
