Visit Córdoba

Cordoba is the second largest city in Argentina and has a vibrant culture. It is located in the foothills of the Sierras Chicas mountain range and has a temperate climate with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. The city is known for its magnificent colonial architecture, ranging from baroque churches to art deco buildings.

One of the must-visit sights in Cordoba is Manzana Jesuitica - a complex of nine Jesuit churches that are listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. This site is home to many historical attractions such as La Compania de Jesus Church and Colegio Nacional de Monserrat - one of Argentina's oldest universities.

The region around Cordoba was first settled by Spanish conquistadors in the year 1573. An interesting fact about this city is that it served as South America's first capital between 1573 and 1776 when it was part of the Viceroyalty of Peru before becoming an independent city-state within modern day Argentina.
