The City of Cordoba
Founded in 1573 and located on the Suquíariver, the city of Córdoba is famous for being the greatest cultural center after Buenos Aires. It is bursting with history and has some of the most valuable heritage in the country, with a number of churches, convents and old houses dating back to the 17th century with remarkable artistic and architectural value. The Cathedral, the Compañía, Santa Teresa and Santa Catalina Convents, the House of the Sobremonte Marquee and the Rivera Indarte Theater are among the outstanding monuments in Argentina’s architectural heritage.
There is also the modern, active Córdoba which holds a first class university, a business center, shops and excellent hotels and services for tourists. The downtown area of Córdoba with its beautiful squares and walkways, commercial sites, malls, cultural and recreational centers, and the Suquía and the Cañada as the axes of a new urban landscape are essential parts of Cordoba’s identity.
The great geographical contrasts are the main characteristics of this northwest region. This beautiful region is home to the large northern salt marshes, the north-western plains, the Sierra and Pampa de Pocho with its volcanoes and tunnels that go as far as the north-western plains. It is also here that San Marcos Sierra can be found with its splendid environmental quality; Cruz del Eje with its dam; the Guasapampa Sierra and the archeological site Charquina; Pampa de Pocho, volcanoes, lakes, and palm trees, the great tunnels, and the Chancani natural reserve with its thick quebracho plantations and La Candelaria Jesuit Ranch.
The Traslasierra Valley offers an exceptional setting, complemented by great weather, fresh air, blue skies, the presence of a large natural vegetation reserve together with crop fields. All this is located under the stunning Champaqui Hill (2,794 meters above sea level) which is the highest point in the province.
The Sierras Grandes, the Pampa de Achala and the Condorito National Park are great attractions for adventure tourism, trekking and mountain climbing.
Arts and crafts in this area are made in black ceramics and you can also buy hand-made sweets and regional wines from the hospitable locals.
“Valle de Punilla”
The Argentine Republic Rally, with its worldwide recognition as one of the most important in its category, gathers tourists from all over the world and represents an important event in the province. The Punilla Valley is the heart of tourism in Córdoba.
The Terrones and its strangely eroded reddish rock formations, the Quebrada and the view point in Cuchi Corral as a hang gliding center, the Quebrada de Vaquerias, the Natural Reserve of Bosque Serrano and the Chorrilos Waterfall are some of the many sights in this valley.
The recreational activities of sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, swimming, horse back riding, trekking and hiking have their special setting in the Cosquin and San Antonio rivers, the San Roque dam by Carlos Paz city, the La Falda and the Cajon dams in Capilla del Monte.
By night it is a wonderful place to go try some food from a wide variety of restaurants and head off to theaters, bars, clubs and casinos. Carlos Paz is the center of it all.
The Calamuchita valley is limited by the Sierras Chicas to the east and the Sierras de los Comechingones to the west and has the magnificent Champaqui Hill (2,794 meters above sea level) as its highest mountain.
Fishing and other kinds of water sports may be enjoyed in any of its seven dams, among which include Cerro Pelado, Rio Tercero, PiedrasMoras and Los Molinos. The National Beer Festival, the Delicatessen Festival and the Alpine Chocolate Festival in Villa General Belgrano are of great importance at provincial and national levels. And, of course, snow on the top of the hills adds the necessary charm.
