Cordoba (AR) at a Glance

Cordoba began life as an outpost for Spanish travelers passing from Peru to the Atlantic Ocean through Argentina. With the arrival of the Jesuit order during the 17th century the city transformed itself into a center of religion, education and culture. Today the modern city is an exciting mix of old and new. Students lounge in parks and hole up in coffee shops with their homework. The nightlife is youthful, busy and diverse. Jump around to techno, practice your tango steps or head to the theater. During the day, explore old churches, wander the cobblestones of ancient streets and dig into Argentine and church art at various museums, galleries and churches. 

For those who want a break from city touring, the province of Cordoba's beckons. Rugged mountains are great for climbing.  Fertile valleys are scattered with colonial buildings, cave paintings and bucolic agricultural scenes.
