Situated in the center of the city, next to Plaza San Martin, Cordoba Cathedral is now complete and functional, and is the oldest in Argentina. Both its majestic facade and its interior are very nice and in the 18th century style. The Europeans may not find it very special because of the enormous legacy of cathedrals we have, but considering that it is in South America, it is a real gem.
The Eiffel Wheel In Sarmiento Park, Cordoba, is in a metallic structure which has been almost abandoned. It is a trip to a world of a different time when theme parks worked, but now it is just an attraction. Few people from Cordoba know that this structure was designed by Gustav Eiffel and was purchased in 1910 by the government of the Province of Tucumán. This is not the only work that remains in the city from the workshops of the famous French constructor. In Nueva Cordoba neighbourhood you will find the Eiffel Villa, a house full of iron that also goes unnoticed by city dwellers. I attached this picture because it reminds me of when I was a kid, and we used to go to the amusement park. More than once I remember seeing the city from the highest point of the wheel.
This journey is a must if you´re around Cordoba. If you go during the winter you might be hit with a bit of hail on the way but it could be nice to play around in the snow. During the summer, the landscape is very beautiful and you can see the mountains. Definitely a must.
Ka Cañada is a creek that runs through the heart of the city and is channeled with stones and surrounded by an avenue with characteristic things of the zone. It is very nice given that spring is starting and it is a fantastic landscape to enjoy!
This museum is located near the town of Nono in the Traslasierras Valley of Cordoba. Its facade is very picturesque and, with 49 statues, represents all the men who helped to shape the evolution of human thought. It is an interesting and extremely eclectic museum as it has a bit of everything. If you´re in Cordoba, it´s a great place to visit.
It is the headquarters of the authorities of the former colony, and in its time it is where they kept the slaves, and during the recent military dictatorship (in the 70s) it also became a place of detention, torture and murder. It is interesting to see the smallest spaces in the basement of the building where many former slaves were kept all together imprisoned.
This is one of the buildings within the Jesuit Block, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you'll find the Society of Jesus, the Rector of the University of Cordoba, the chapels and churches of the Jesuit order, the library, the Colegio Nacional de Monserrat and the School of Exact, Physical, and Natural Sciences.
The other day I was bitten by the bug of wanting to take pictures, but I did not know where to go. I was accompanied by my best friend and we walked and walked, thinking we could photograph and suddenly we thought about Plaza España (a small square in a roundabout where many of the major avenues of Cordoba meet.) I had never been in the middle. Despite being located on a roundabout the noises sounded far away and it felt like a different place. It was quiet, a world which moved at a different speed.
My favorite area of Cordoba is the Uptown Arts Stroll: a flea market open every weekend,where it is easy it is to find artisans selling matte cow leather lined containers, designers showcasing their work, antiques and collectibles or simple homemade pie. The Uptown Arts Stroll is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 16:30 to 21:30 in the evening and those hours are crowded. It is hard to take two steps followed between the lively crowd flitting from post to post, among many things very curious and just want to buy even the most grip. Personally, and even overcoming the temptation to buy anything, it would be able to go three consecutive days without ever getting bored. The Promenade of the Arts is one of those markets where you may forget the time simply wandering through their posts that are lit, and taking pictures right and left. And if we add joy and breathed in Argentina ...
It's incredible to see a marvel of nature in this Mediterranean area. The amazing variety of birds that can be seen in the sky is worth checking out, and its curative water makes it a destination worth visiting in Cordoba.
Cordoba province is famous for its mountains, which make it a great place for people looking to enjoy a healthy breath of fresh air. When I visited this mountain village, I was told that Che Guevara passed time here as a child for health reasons as he had trouble breathing. Manuel de Falla, the Spanish composer, also came here, though in his case it was for political reasons. Every corner of these mountains is pure nature, and Las Albahacas has the advantage of being largely undeveloped. Here you can go fishing, horse riding or hiking in glorious surroundings.
