Considered the second most important city in Argentina and with a population of more than 1,3 million, Córdoba may not have the tourist appeal of cities like Buenos Aires and Bariloche. But it certainly has attractions that deserve attention. The city has several historical, tourist and cultural points of great importance. La Cañada de Córdoba is the channeling part of a stream that runs through the city from north to south.

The Arco de Córdoba is an important symbol of culture located at the entrance of Avenida Amadeo Sabattini. In 2000, UNESCO declared the Jesuit Manzana a World Heritage Site and, in 2006, the city was named American Capital of Culture in that year.

To begin with, the city has as its main characteristic two great opposites that turn into a delicious trademark: the junction of the old with the new. With a well-attended university, founded by Jesuits in the 17th century, and several schools, the region has more than one hundred thousand students in the middle of a place that preserves its interior roots.
