Cordoba - Things to do
Teatro del Libertador General San Martín
It’s well worth going to a performance here, if only to see the opulence of the country’s most historic theater. The theater was completed in 1891, and the floor was designed to be mechanically raised and leveled to the stage, so seats could be removed, allowing for grand parties for the aristocracy of the early 1900s.
