Introducing Resistencia

This provincial capital is perched on the edge of the barely populated wilderness of the Chaco. It isn’t the most likely candidate for the garland of artistic center of northern Argentina, yet baking-hot Resistencia has strong claims to that title – its streets are studded with sculpture (500 or more) and there’s a strong boho-cultural streak that represents a complete contrast to the tough cattle-and-dust solitudes that characterize the province.
