La Pampa is a province of Argentina, located in the pampas in the middle of the country. The capital is Santa Rosa. The province has a population of 299,294 (2001), and covers an area of 143,440 km². Neighboring provinces are from the north clockwise San Luis, Córdoba, Buenos Aires, Río Negro, Neuquén and Mendoza.

La Pampa has a Mediterranean climate, with more precipitation in the northeast of the province, where grain, soya beans and sunflowers (for safflower oil) are grown. The flat open grasslands of La Pampa are devoted to stock-raising.

In 1952 the La Pampa territory was renamed in honor of Eva Perón, and also became a province. In 1955 both La Pampa and Chaco, the province renamed for Juan Perón at the same time, were renamed back to the original names. Despite of its geographical reality, in june, 1996 La Pampa become one of the founding provinces of the Region Patagónica group.
