Santa Rosa is a city in the Argentine Pampas, and the capital of La Pampa Province, Argentina. It lies on the east of the province, on the shore of the Don Tomás Lagoon, at the intersection of National Routes 5 and 35. The city (94,340) and its surroundings hold 102,610 inhabitants (census-ar|2001), around a third of the population of the province. Its current mayor is Néstor Ricardo Alcala. Founded in 1892 by Tomás Mason, Santa Rosa did not develop into a relatively important agricultural centre until the second half of the 20th century. It is still one of the smallest provincial capitals of the country after Patagonian Rawson, Ushuaia and Viedma.

City sights include the Fitte neighbourhood (1930), the monument to San Martín, the Palace of Justice, the Teatro Español Theatre (1908), the Provincial Art Museum (with paintings by Raúl Soldi, Antonio Berni, Quinquela Martín and other important Argentine painters) and the Provincial Natural History Museum.

The Santa Rosa Airport airport codes|RSA|SAZR is located 2 kilometres from Santa Rosa on Route 35, and serves regular flights to Buenos Aires and Viedma.

Near Santa Rosa is the city of Toay.
