Destination guide: Cordoba, Argentina
Cordoba is the second most important city in Argentina and a UNESCO-designated American Capital of Culture. It is also an example of the preservation of national history, since it has several impeccably maintained colonial buildings, built between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
LAN Airlines offers flights to Cordoba so you can enjoy its beautiful scenery, which, together with its movie theaters, theatres, discos and bars, creates a unique Cordobean bohemian atmosphere.

Cordoba really is a fascinating mix of old and new. Where else will you find DJs spinning electro-tango in crowded student bars next to 17th-century Jesuit ruins?
In 2006 Cordoba was awarded the hefty title of Cultural Capital of the Americas, and it fits the city 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.
The alternative film scene is alive and kicking. Young designers and artisans strut their stuff at a weekend crafts market that sprawls for blocks and is one of the best in the country.
And if all this action is too much for you, quaint little mountain villages are a short bus ride away.
