What country is Cordoba Argentina in?
Córdoba is not only the capital of the province of the same name, but also the second largest city in the country. It is located near the geographical center of Argentina, east of the Sierras de Córdoba mountain range. Due to the numerous educational and teaching institutions and churches located here, the metropolis is also simply called La Docta, “the scholar”, or Ciudad de las Campanas, “City of bells”. Due to the large number of students, Córdoba gives a rather young and lively impression – the cultural offer is also extremely diverse. But the city can also boast a lot of colonial buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, most of which are now under monument protection.
Accommodation, Shopping, Gastronomy, Nightlife
Hotels can be found here in all price categories, but especially in the center of the city. There are cheap quarters near the bus station, for example, the more posh ones are at Plaza San Martín or in Nueva Córdoba. Thanks to the good bus connections, tourists looking for peace and quiet are also well advised with a hotel in one of the suburbs, such as Villa Carlos Paz or Río Ceballos.
There are also restaurants in Córdoba in all categories and price ranges. In addition to the omnipresent grill restaurants (parrillas), you will find especially numerous Arabic and Mexican restaurants. The Cerro de las Rosas district and the entire Nueva Córdoba district are real “gastro centers”. Cerro de las Rosas is not only known for its famous restaurants and many shops that mainly sell clothing, food and sports equipment, but is also home to the oldest buildings in the region. Pubs, clubs and discos also attract many young people, although the majority are more likely to be found in Nueva Córdoba, the largest district of the city. In addition to large shopping malls, restaurants and supermarkets, there is also an important cultural center, the Palacio Ferreyra.
