Córdoba is the second largest city in Argentina, with about 1.4 million inhabitants, and is the capital of Cordoba province. It is known for its rich colonial heritage and its old university, now the second-largest of the country.
You can’t miss the historical centre and the magnificent churches, the Cathedral and the Jesuitic quarter with the Montserrat School and the old University buildings. Also, Córdoba is home to the perhaps most popular Argentine Latin pop music genre, cuarteto.
It is surrounded by beautiful valleys, formed up by three main mountain groups, which are popular tourist destinations. You can perfectly combine a dive into urban life with a trip to the Sierras, as there is plenty of public transport.
