List of famous Argentines with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

Ask anyone to round up the best things that Argentina has to offer, and he/she will rattle away things like wine, beef, gauchos, Andes, tango, and football. While there is no denying that these are indeed some of the greatest USPs of the country, there is definitely more to the country than its dance, food, and mountains. The real treasure of Argentina is its wealth of talents — its long list of eminent men and women who have contributed immensely to earn Argentina a coveted status in the world. Without them, the country would not have held the prized place it holds today. Unless you have been living under the rock, you will be no stranger to names like Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona, Pope Francis, Che Guevara, Carlos Gardel, and Luis Federico Leloir. From world-famous soccer players to Nobel prize winners and from renowned scribes to avant-garde scientists, Argentina can claim to have produced some truly outstanding men and women. Read on to know all about the famous Argentines in the biographies below that trails their timeline, trivia, and interesting facts.
