Cordoba in Argentina

Visit Cordoba

Introduction

Cordoba is the capital of the Cordoba Province and a popular inclusion in many tailor-made itineraries. Second only to Buenos Aires in terms of population, the city is an enthralling mix of old and new and a gateway to the northwest - a stirring Andean landscape of deep amber canyons, jagged hilltops and salt lakes frequented by Andean flamingos.

Cordoba was founded in the 16th century when the Spanish settler Jeronimo Luis de Cabrera was tasked with forming a settlement in the Punilla Valley and it has grown steadily ever since. In the Old Town you'll find Argentina's oldest cathedral, which is distinct for its extraordinary mishmash of 17th and 18th century architectural styles. Here, too, is Argentina's oldest university, the National University of Córdoba, which the Jesuits established in the 17th century, and which today gives the city a youthful vivacity.
