The City of Cordoba, Argentina

Cordoba Argentina

Córdoba is Argentina's second city and offers visitors an interesting contrast to the modern metropolis of Buenos Aires. The city was founded in 1573 and offers a fascinating culmination of Jesuit ruins and the best preserved colonial architecture in the country fused with a buzzing arts scene, classy modernity and an enormous student population from the city's seven universities. Córdoba is so highly regarded for its cultural richness that it was crowned the Cultural Capital of the Americas in 2006.

With a population of over 1.5 million, Argentina's Córdoba is a lively destination, however it is refreshingly untouristy making it a great place to muck in with the locals and get a real glimpse of traditional argentine city life. As well as being the country's largest academic centre, Córdoba is home to important technological landmarks including the National Spaceport, as well as being an industrial base for big companies like Fiat and Renault.
