The tremor hit at a depth of 600 kilometres (372.82 miles), according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).
It was strong enough to make “hanging objects swing” in affected areas, Argentina’s National Seismic Prevention Institute said.
There were no reports on human loss or material damage.
