La Plata, Argentina

La Plata is the capital city of Buenos Aires Province. This planned city is recognized for its layout, a perfect square with the "Historic Axis" preserved intact until today; and for the outstanding design of the diagonals that cross it forming rhombuses within its contour, forests and squares placed exactly every six blocks.

It covers an area of 940.38 km² and it's at 9.87 m above the sea level. It is placed on the "pampa húmeda" (wet pampas), 56 km south-east of Buenos Aires city, at 34º 55' south latitude and 57º 17' west longitude.
