A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it includes the University of Cordoba, a church, a school, a library and several other original 17th century Jesuit buildings. Be sure to ask about the tours of the University of Cordoba Historic Museum, to get the most out of this historic and religious site.
- Only a two-and-half hour drive, head to Mina Clavero, and dive into its valley rivers for rafting, fishing, canoeing, swimming and sun-bathing. Artisan markets and street night shows abound, so be sure to take a stroll at night.
- Feel like hiking or climbing? Then Sierras de Cordoba is waiting for you. Although a longer drive from the city, this mountain range has much to offer. Thanks to its beautiful green hills, crystal clear streams and foamy cascades, unique salt lakes and intricate paths, fun-filled days are guaranteed!

Weather in Cordoba
Cordoba enjoys four marked seasons with usually moderate to high humidity, so sticky hot summers and windy chilly winters are part of its climate. With temperatures as high as 100 °F (38 °C) in its hottest month, January, summer is the top season to travel. Spring and autumn are other popular seasons, especially for local tourism. If you visit the city from November to March, be sure to take a hat, sunscreen, and bottle of water for every outdoor trip!
The food in Cordoba is mostly traditionally Argentinean, fused with Italian staples. Available at most sit-down restaurant you’ll find classics such as the delicious “asado” (the Argentine hot-coal grilled barbecue), Olivier salad, crispy “milanesas” (breaded thin cuts of beef or chicken then pan-fried), hot “empanadas” (savoury meat and veggie filled pastries), crispy baked potato wedges with “chimichurri” (a typical Argentine dressing), and “matambre arrollado” (a flank steak stuffed, rolled and then baked), among a dozen other choices of Italian pasta dishes. For a cheaper treat, get a taste of “panchos” and “choripanes” (grilled hot dogs and sausage sandwiches) at fast-food and street eateries. Other vegetarian options include “tartas” (Argentina’s version of quiches).
