The area is located at the end of the Industrial Corridor of the Argentine littoral, and hosts processing industries (edible oil, flour), as well as ceramics factories and petrochemical plants. San Lorenzo's port and that of nearby Puerto General San Martín are among the largest export outlets in Argentina for primary products (soybean, wheat, maize, etc.).

San Lorenzo has no certain foundation date, but the Municipal Council decided, in 1984, to settle on 6 May 1796, the date when Franciscan friars came and started the evangelization of the area.

The city was the stage of the Battle of San Lorenzo on 3 February 1813, where troops loyal to the Spanish Crown were defeated by local revolutionaries under General José de San Martín. The 18th century San Carlos Monastery has a museum devoted to this battle, the first in the Argentine War of Independence, It is also the birthplace of Argentine footballer Javier Mascherano.
