Founded in 1573, Córdoba is the second largest city in Argentina and one of the oldest in South America.
Circuits in the city include the pedestrian promenades joining the San Martín Square with the ancient Cathedral, the historical Cabildo (town council), the university and several museums, to name a few. When the sun sets, the city
presents a lively atmosphere, manifested in theater performances, cultural events, peñas (folk shows), pubs and discos.
Just a short way from Córdoba, there´s a territory displaying a variety of landscapes and natural resources, and where history and culture are expressed in a unique combination. The sierras rivers with their sandy beaches, together with major artificial lakes, are our province’s main natural attractions. There are several alternatives to enjoy these magnificent settings. Visitors may choose activities such as trekking, scuba diving, horse-trekking, spelunking, mountain biking, 4WD off-roading, free paragliding, water sports, and so on. Other option is to visit the province´s protected areas, which comprise the Quebrada del Condorito National Park, the Mar Chiquita Lake, the Cerro Colorado (Red Mountain) Natural Reserve and the Salinas Grandes (Great Salt Flats).
