Blank Argentina Map with Capitals
The capital of Argentina is Buenos Aires. With a population of more than 3 million people in the city proper, it is by far the largest agglomeration in the country. The metropolitan area of Buenos Aires even has an estimated population of 15.5 million (early 2023).
The history of Buenos Aires can be traced back to the early 16th century when Spanish conquistadors first settled the area. The city was founded in 1536 by Pedro de Mendoza, who named it “Ciudad de Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Ayre” (City of Our Lady Saint Mary of the Fair Winds).
In the following centuries, Buenos Aires developed into an important port and commercial center, and it became the capital of Argentina in 1880. The city underwent rapid industrialization and urbanization in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and it became a major cultural and economic hub.
During this time, Buenos Aires was also home to a thriving intellectual and artistic scene, and it became a center for literature, music, and theater. Many notable writers, musicians, and artists lived and worked in Buenos Aires, and the city’s cultural influence spread throughout Argentina and beyond.
In the latter half of the 20th century, Buenos Aires – just like the entire country – faced many challenges, including economic instability and political unrest. Nonetheless, the city remains the key center of Argentine culture, politics, and society.
The above map shows the location of Buenos Aires and all the provincial capitals in Argentina.
Blank Map of Argentina
Bordered by the Andes mountain range to the west and the South Atlantic Ocean to the east, Argentina extends from the Tropic of Capricorn in the north to Tierra del Fuego in the south. The country is approximately 2,780 miles long and 1,430 miles wide. Argentina shares land borders with Bolivia (942 km), Brazil (1,263 km), Chile (6,691 km), Paraguay (2,531 km), and Uruguay (541 km).
The Andes mountain range in the west of Argentina forms the country’s natural border with Chile. The Uruguay River and the Rio de la Plata, which is the estuary of the Uruguay and Paraná rivers, constitute the border with Uruguay.
Argentina has a coastline of 4,989 km along the Atlantic Ocean. Its highest elevation is the Cerro Aconcagua (6,962 m) in the province of Mendoza, which is also the highest peak in South America. The country’s lowest point is the Laguna del Carbon in the province of Santa Cruz (-105 m).
The above blank map of Argentina also shows its neighboring countries and international borders. The Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) are included as well.
These islands were the scene of the Falklands War 1982 between Argentina and the United Kingdom. On April 2nd of that year, Argentine forces invaded and occupied the British-controlled islands, provoking the deployment of a task force to retake them. The war lasted until June 14th, when Argentina officially surrendered. Hundreds of lives were lost, with 255 British servicemen killed and some 750 Argentine soldiers killed or missing in action.
While the United Kingdom remains in control of the Falkland Islands, Argentina still claims them today. The same applies to South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, also governed by the UK.
