The settlement of Jesuits in the Cordobian capital left an extensive architectural, cultural and religious heritage. This colonial splendor can be enjoyed in the museums, churches and public buildings in the downtown area.
Starting from Plaza San Martín, one can travel on a simple circuit that will allow one to visit the most outstanding spots: the “Cabildo” (old Town Hall), the Cathedral, the “Templo de la Compañía de Jesus” (Temple of the Company of Jesus), the “Colegio de Monserrat” (Monserrat School), the “Manzana Jesuítica” (Jesuit Square), the “Cañada” (floodwater containment canal), the “Iglesia de las Carmelitas Descalzas”, the “Basílica Santo Domingo”, the “Iglesia de los Capuchinos” (Capuchin Monks´ Church) and the “Museo de Arte Emilio Caraffa” (“Emilio Caraffa” Arts Museum), ending the walk in Parque Sarmiento (Sarmiento Park) and the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (Cordoba National University).
However, along with this historical city, there is a modern and lively parallel Cordoba with shopping and commercial centers, and an ample offer of cultural and recreational activities. Nightlife has a special flavor, with a large number of bars, pubs and discos, for all ages and tastes.
A few kilometers away from the city, one can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Cordoba Hills, and the bounty of nature in its many valleys.
It is up to you to discover all that Cordoba has to offer!
