Cordoba is a city known for its student population and many universities. It’s the polar opposite of Buenos Aires! Cordoba is laid-back, set in the mountains (las Sierras) of central Argentina and is known for its Jesuit history and preserved colonial architecture.
This area is full of students and it is trendy. The bar street is Calle Rondeau and it can get pretty loud, to say the least! There are lots of grocery stores, fruit stores, hairdressers and clothing shops around here.
For hostels, we recommend 531 Hostel, Nueva Cordoba. It has a cool rooftop patio and free breakfast. Dan had 4 bowls of cereal. That didn’t make Becca very happy.
La Iglesia de los Capuchinos
La Iglesia de los Capuchinos has one tower missing to illustrate that mankind is imperfect (great trivia fact!)
The National University of Cordoba
The National University of Cordoba (Universidad Nacional de Cordoba), is where we walked around for a few hours, looking at murals and buildings tagged in graffiti. The university has a long history steeped in politics, and we were lucky to walk around with our local friend who had been a student there at one time. The campus is next to a giant park called Sarmiento, which has a lake, a zoo and lots of green space.
Manzana Jesuitica is the main tourist attraction of Cordoba, boasting the most well-preserved Jesuit ruins in all of Argentina. You can see the original university, a big cathedral, some other churches and a monastery scattered in the 2-block radius and the pedestrian street 25 de Mayo.
Plaza San Martin
Plaza San Martin is a giant square and home to one of the biggest iglesias. It happens to be surrounded by tons of banks, so if you need some banking, this is your spot.
