Argentina is world’s eighth largest country, Argentina occupies an area more extensive than Mexico and the U.S. state of Texas combined. It encompasses immense plains, deserts, tundra, and forests, as well as tall mountains, rivers, and thousands of miles of ocean shoreline.

Almost all Argentines are descendants of immigrants from Europe, and Argentine culture is a lively blend of European customs and Latin American innovations.

About four-fifths of Argentine people are at least nominally Argentina2Roman Catholic; the majority of them are nonpracticing. The faith’s influence, however, is strongly reflected in government and society. Protestants, Muslims and Jews account for small minorities.
