Tourism in Córdoba surprises visitors with its countless attractions, framed by the various mountain systems from the West and North of its territory. Its rivers and creeks, its endless green areas and woodlands, its mild weather and its unique natural scenes lure visitors to this privileged site year round.
Traditional and modern, cultural and historical from every point of view, its Spanish and Jesuit legacy is evident in estancias and churches. Córdoba features one of the most significant hotel offers in the country, along with a remarkable service infrastructure and expert vendors that meet the recreation, adventure, gastronomic and show demands of all visitors who come along to enjoy several options that have become classics at this landlocked province in Argentina.
Its cities are equally captivating and offer varied alternatives and new experiences. Starting of course with the capital of Córdoba, the city bearing the same name as the province, which is its political center, where the idiosyncrasy and philosophy of the people of Córdoba are breathed everyday.
Villa Carlos Paz is the magnet of the summer and one of the most significant receptive centers in the country during this season, not only due to its incredible natural attractions but also due to the wide range of plays staged at this location.
Every year in October, the eyes of all visitors rest on Villa General Belgrano, whose National Beer Festival attracts enthusiasts from all over Argentina and the world. At the very typical City of Cosquín, Argentinian folklore capital, its music festival and traditional dancing stand out, but also the more recent festival called Cosquín Rock.
Córdoba boasts dazzling roads that go across various mountain ranges, such as the famous Sierras Chicas, Sierras Grandes, Traslasierra and Camino de las Altas Cumbres, all of them ideal to discover other must visit cities like La Cumbre, Nono, Mina Clavero, Cura Brochero, Jesús María, La Falda, Alta Gracia, Santa Rosa de Calamuchita and Río Ceballos.
Dams and reservoirs, natural and historical-cultural attractions, in addition to a prodigious climate, turn the Province of Córdoba into one of the most extraordinary as far as tourism is concerned. Maybe because it has it all, and because it unveils something new at its endless nooks day after day.
