Formosa is the capital city of the province of Formosa and only a few hundred meters away from Paraguay across the Paraguay River. The name of the city originates from the ancient Spanish word fermosa (currently hermosa) meaning "beautiful" and that is just what it stands for with its splendid nature. Situated on a flat land with a slight dip to the east, there are lagoons and gorges that favor the growth due to the excess of water. Formosa is the hub of the provincial industry that processes products of its natural resources. The local climate is humid sub-tropical.
