Bahía Blanca
Bahía Blanca city has the characteristic landscape of a plain with soft waves and slopes which go down the coast. The slopes end up measuring 70 meters high. The city is called this way because it is located on the Bay which forms the marine coast. The sailors of the ships of Hernando of Magellan were the first Europeans who saw the place in 1520, being called this way because it was seen white from the sea, the coast reflected a white color. In 1525, it was given the name of Baxos of white sands, taking with the running years its present day name of Bahía Blanca. At the beginning of the XIX Century Bahía Blanca's region was already considered strategic for the commercial possibilities which its location promised, so 1824, Bernardino Rivadavia who was governor's Martín Rodríguez minister projected the extension of the line of outposts up to this city so that there was founded a fort and a population settled to make more effective the fight against the Indians. The project took four years to be fullfilled when the governor Colonel Manuel Dorrego ordered the expedition which left from Fort Independence in Tandil on March 22 1828, with the regiment 4 headed by Ramón Estomba who arrived on the bay on April 9 1828. Having chosen the appropriate place for the Fort which would be called Protectora Argentina, began the construction on April 11, 1828 which is considered the foundation date. The construction of the Fort demanded four months of work. It was prepared to repel the Indian raids whose attacks were rejected successfully. The population was settling around the Fort. the population had to put up with the Indian attacks, pests and even shortage of provisions. On October 22, 1895, Bahía Blanca was declared city.
