A Vibrant City Surrounded by the Central Sierras & Several Excellent Estancias

Argentina'’s second largest city is a vibrant metropolis full of life and is home to 7 universities. The city boasts some of the finest ancient colonial architecture including important landmark buildings and the carefully preserved Jesuit Block in the centre of town. You will find a huge array of cafes, restaurants and nightlife.

Head out from the city and you will see the beautiful Sierra Mountains, home to a number of authentic Estancias. The beautiful landscape is made up of high plains, fertile valleys, salt mines and gorges which are perfect for exploring on horseback or by foot.

Each estancia offers its own character and charm, along with an array of activities for you to enjoy while you are there.

The Area

Downtown Cordoba is relatively compact and easily explored on foot. Transfers from the airport take around 40 minutes. Estancias located outside of the city sit in their own area of countryside and will include full board and many of the activities. Transfers can take anything from 1-3 hours depending on the estancia's location.

Best Time to Go

Temperatures in summer (Nov - Feb) can reach highs of 29C in the sunshine so we would ideally recommend spring (Sep - Nov) or autumn (Feb - Apr) when temperatures are a little cooler, but the area can be visited all year round.

Iglesia Cathedral

Finished in 1782, the Iglesia Cathedral in Cordoba is the oldest in Argentina and carries much history and heritage. It was constructed over a period of two centuries and was initially started in 1577 under various architects, including the Jesuits.

With a neoclassical and baroque design, the Cathedral is crowned by a large dome. Inside, the lavish interior of Valencian tiles and rococo features will stun any visitor. It was painted by the famous painter, Emilio Caraffa who hailed originally from Cordoba.

Jesuit Block (Manzana Jesuítica)

Also known as the Manzana de las Luces, the Jesuit Block was granted to the Jesuits by colonial rulers in 1583. Their aim was to evangelise the natives of Argentina, and the block consists of the Companía de Jesus Church, built in 1640 and is the country's oldest church, and the Domestic Chapel completed in 1644.

It also includes The National University of Cordoba which dates back from 1621, and Cordoba's first University- the National University Museum, containing the Jesuits Grand library. The Monserrat School is another Jesuit building and part of the Jesuit block that was founded in 1687.

History  of  Cordoba

Cordoba was originally inhabited by the native Comechingones who named Cordoba after the mountains along the border with the province of San Luis. It was founded in 1573, and for a long time, Cordoba was the largest and most important town in Argentina. Córdoba's university was founded as early as 1613 by the Jesuits.

The Catholic Church had much influence on social life until 1900, and Córdoba sometimes was referred to as "Argentina'’s Rome". In 1918 a student revolution caused the modernisation of the university, which until this time had been very conservative and was full of corruption.  In the 1950s the city was industrialized by the Perón and Frondizi governments. Today, Córdoba is Argentina's economic and educational centre and is the second technology hub behind Buenos Aires.
