Cordoba, Argentina

One of Argentina's oldest cities, Cordoba possesses charms enough for any traveller; a temperature year-round climate, fascinating Jesuit history, culture in spades and enchanting countryside surrounding its borders. Life in this cosmopolitan and sophisticated university city is certainly exciting.

Known for an artistic culture that maintains a small-town atmosphere, Cordoba features numerous must-see landmarks, the most prominent of which, the Jesuit Block and Estancias, features architecture and landscaping performed over hundreds of years. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Jesuit Block offers an unparalleled glimpse into the past. The colonial period is best epitomised by the imposing Iglesia Catedral in the central square, Plaza San Martín. Those looking for more revolutionary fare can take the 45 minute trip to the Casa Che Guevara in nearby Alta Gracia. Museum aficionados will enjoy a day spent at the Emilio Caraffa Provincial Fine Arts Museu and the Museo de la Ciudad.

If your visit to Córdoba includes a Sunday evening, Paseo de las Artes in the Guemes neighbourhood is a must. Córdoba’s premier crafts market runs for three hours every week. Some of the best shops are located in two warren-like mini-malls, Casa Tomada and Paseo Colonial. Whether you're into art, music, fashion and design or film, Cordoba will spoil you rotten. 

Watch this space as we'll soon be adding the charming Estancia El Colibri to our collection - the pefect base for exploring Cordoba and the region.
