It is known for its rich colonial heritage and its old university, now the second-largest of the country. Around 200,000 people study here, which makes the city's population one of the youngest and liveliest in South America.
Despite being a whopping 715km away from Buenos Aires, Córdoba is anything but a provincial backwater – in 2006 the city was awarded the hefty title of Cultural Capital of the Americas, and the title fitted like a glove. Four excellent municipal galleries – dedicated to emerging, contemporary, classical and fine art respectively – are within easy walking distance of each other and the city center.
Córdoba is the second most important city in Argentina and the main urban development in the central region of the country. Even though it is nestled in a vast valley, it is surrounded by the heights of various mountain range systems that create a unique microclimate.
The dazzling City of Córdoba is open to tourism not only through its history but also by means of its impressive sceneries, with plenty of eye-catching sites and various surprises for visitors. Its wide accommodation offer continues to innovate year after year.
Its streets and promenades feature traces of the ancient colonial architecture mingled with modern buildings. All this is crowned with parks and green spaces such as Sarmiento Park, designed in the late XIX century, which manages to supply enough oxygen for this large metropolitan area. This city actually offers hundreds of inexhaustible activities for visitors to feel at ease such as circuits in the pedestrian promenades joining San Martín Square with the ancient Cathedral, the historical Cabildo, Trejo House and several museums, to name a few.
When the sun sets, the city presents an active cultural atmosphere and nightlife manifested in the theaters that present a wide range of recreational and artistic performances.
Córdoba is a city to be felt and enjoyed fully during the four seasons.
