Very High Energy (VHE) γ-astronomy and cosmic ray physics are the main goals of the ARGO-YBJ experiment. The detector is located in Tibet (People’s Republic of China) and is a full-coverage Extensive Air Shower array consisting of a carpet of Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs). Altitude and full coverage ensure an unprecedented reconstruction of showers close to their maximum size. The performances of the detector and the present results concerning TeV cosmic ray physics will be presented.
