Famous People From Argentina

Ask anyone to define Argentina by a few names today and almost instantly the answer would be Lionel Messi, Pope Francis, Diego Maradona, Che Guevara, Carlos Gardel, and so on - that’s the kind of impact Argentine men have left on the world. Belonging to the land of diversely spectacular landscapes and scenic waterfalls, Argentina is one of the most striking countries in South America. Though the land is famous for its food, wine and festival, there is more than meets the eye when it comes to talking about the country. It is its people, or Argentines who have contributed immensely to help the country bag a popular place in the world. While both men and women have excessively impacted the country rich culture and heritage, many a times, Argentine men take an upper hand.
