La Plata is a partido (department) in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, located some 60 kilometers south-east of the city of Buenos Aires.


Map of La Plata, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina

It has an area of 926 km2 (358 sq mi), and a population of 774,369 (2001 census [INDEC]). Its capital is La Plata, which also serves as the capital of the province. La Plata is the centre of the Greater La Plata urban conurbation.

Many of the suburbs have train links to both Buenos Aires and La Plata, and also good road access via the Buenos Aires-La Plata toll highway. There is also an extensive network of buses serving the Greater La Plata area.

The Manuel B. Gonnet village features the República de los Niños theme park.

Several parks lie along the Camino General Belgrano road, which crosses the department north-to-south, notably the Parque Pereyra Iraola.


The city has a good number of educational institutions at various levels, both public and private. The most renowned public schools are three of the four members of the UNLP: the Colegio Nacional Rafael Hernández, the Liceo Víctor Mercante and the Bachillerato de Bellas Artes.

La Plata is a symbol of a distinguished and prolific academy. Physics, astronomy, biology, were undoubtedly the fields that scientists in this city over their peers in the country and the region, have dominated.


La Plata is home to one of the fiercest derby matches (clásicos) in Argentine football, contested between Estudiantes and Gimnasia y Esgrima.
