About Cordoba

Cordoba sits right in the heart of Argentina, below the hills of the Sierras Chicas and besides the wide Suquía River.

Capital of the province, the city is renowned for its university which is the oldest in the country. It’s no wonder then that the city’s nickname is La Docta, or ‘the learned one’.

Testaments to the city’s rich history are littered throughout the picturesque and prestigious architecture. Most notably perhaps is the Jesuit Block, a stunning set of buildings that have earnt UNESCO World Heritage status.

And if it’s a lively night life you’re after, look no further! Being a university city it’s hardly surprising that there are plenty of spots to keep you entertained throughout the night. Don’t forget though that universities have holidays, and in these holidays Cordoba feels a whole lot quieter.

Temperatures and rainfall are both highest between November to March. April to October are drier and temperatures a little cooler, ranging between high and low teens Celcius
