A plain. See pampas.
The treeless plains of South America, south of the Amazon.
The broad flat grasslands of central Argentina.
(Sp.) Flat land.
The Pampas (from Quechua, meaning "plain") are the fertile South American lowlands that include the Argentine provinces of Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Santa Fe, and CÃ³rdoba, most of Uruguay, and the southernmost end of Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, covering more than 750,000 kmÂ² (290,000 square miles). These vast plains are only interrupted by the low Ventania mountain range near BahÃa Blanca (Argentina), with 1,300 m height. The climate is mild, with precipitation of 600 to 1,200 mm, more or less evenly distributed through the year, making the soils appropriate for agriculture.
