San Fernando Partido

San Fernando is a Partido in Buenos Aires Province in eastern Argentina, part of the Province of Buenos Aires. His headquarters is called San Fernando and located approximately in the center of the area. San Fernando has 148 064 inhabitants ( INDEC the Census, 2001).

The Partido includes in addition to the built-up area in the west, numerous islands of the delta of the Paraná and therefore has a relatively low population density. It is bordered on the west by Tigre and Campana, on the north by the province of Entre Ríos, on the east by the Isla Martín García as well as Uruguay and the Río de la Plata, and on the south by San Isidro.

Like the other Partidos the province also has the status of a San Fernando municipality ( municipio ), but is divided into different localities ( Localidades ) and therefore is more similar to the German agricultural or urban districts.


San Fernando is divided into three villages:

  • San Fernando ( 69 110 inhabitants)
  • Victoria ( 39 447 inhabitants)
  • Virreyes ( 39 507 inhabitants)

3,067 inhabitants also live on the islands in the delta of the Paraná River.
