The vast plains or “prairies” located in central Argentina from the Atlantic coast to the Andean foothills are called The Pampas, means "flat surface." The Argentine Pampas are a dry, barren zone with great saline areas and sandy deserts in the west (La Pampa province) and a humid zone in the east (includes part of Buenos Aires province). This territory has long been glorified in songs and folktales. This is where wheat and sunflowers grow.
