Destination guide: Cordoba
Cordoba is considered one of Argentina's most important cities. Discover the adventures waiting for you there:
San Martin Square
This square was the very heart of the city when Cordoba was initially designed in 1577 and because of its privileged location, some of Cordoba's most important historic buildings can be seen from this site, making it an excellent point of reference for tourists of all types.
This enormous green area is the largest in Cordoba and one of the oldest in all of South America. It includes a lake, zoo and museums, among other attractions. It was named in honor of former Argentine President Domingo Faustino Sarmiento and is located in downtown Cordoba, creating a spatial contrast with its high-density urban surroundings.
Villa Carlos Paz
Visitors to this small city - located near Cordoba - will revel in the 1960's style architecture of many of its buildings, most of which are now used as nightclubs or restaurants. The city is famous for its cuckoo clock located in Valle de Punilla that was built by a German colony, and for Playa de los Hippies that can be found 20 kilometers (12 miles) south of downtown Carlos Paz. The town is loaded with parks, cinemas, theaters, bars, a casino, spas, camping and plenty of hotels.
Quebrada de Condorito National Park
Spread over 37,000 hectares (91,429 acres), this park is bursting with turbulent rivers, rocky terrain and the nesting grounds of the Andean condor. Located 100 kilometers (62 miles) from Cordoba, visitors can indulge in trekking, fishing, outings and mountain biking, among other activities. The endless niches provide ample opportunity to observe condor and eagle behavior in the wild. This is an outdoor opportunity you won't want to miss.
Cosquin is situated on the outskirts of Cordoba in Valle de Punilla and plays an important tourist role in the province despite its small size. This small town is an attractive camping and spa destination where the warm climate helps make this a therapeutic retreat.
