Córdoba city

At the centre of an area of great natural beauty lies a modern city with a fascinating past. Córdoba is Argentina's second largest city, capital of one of the country's most densely populated and wealthy provinces, with a lively student population and buzzing atmosphere. It lies on the Río Suquía, extending over a wide valley, with the sierras visible in the west. The city has been an important trade centre since the area was colonized in the 16th century, and retains an unusually fine set of colonial buildings at its heart, the astonishing Manzana de los Jesuitas, complete with its temple still intact.
Cordobeses
are renowned throughout the country for their sharp sense of humour, defiant attitude and a lilting accent that other regions delight in imitating. However, along with
their strong sense of civic pride, their warm welcome makes Córdoba one of the most hospitable areas i
n the country. For more information, see www.cordobaciudad.com, or www.cordobaturismoafull.com.ar.
