This place has been named after Juan Ceballos, who founded the District of Río Ceballos on the base of an ancient Comechingones settlement.
Located in what is called the Sierras Chicas
(Small Mountain Range) in Córdoba, not only does the nice-looking City of Río Ceballos
offer all kinds of services and activities for visitors, but it also provides tourists new attractions year after year.
The river is the main source of vitality in town, where the greenness is combined with the typical hues of the mountain range.
The district is accessed from the capital of the province
either through a road that joins it with Unquillo or along the new road called Pajas Blancas
, on which Cordoba’s International Airport is located.
The city’s thriving trade is becoming more and more important as this urban settlement continues to lure visitors due to its temperate and dry mountain climate, ideal to enjoy nautical sports or contemplative tourism, something coveted by people of all ages.
Its main natural scenes include various reserves visited by tourists from all over the world year round. Some of them have managed to turn this city into an icon, namely: Los Hornillos Creek and its singular cascade and La Quebrada Dam.
The architecture of the City of Río Ceballos features Norman style, which has provided a very particular kind of magic ever since the days on which the first settlements took place.
The local church and the amphitheater enjoy this privilege, just like some of the bridges that cross the local rivers. They are a faithful reflection of how the ornamentation used to decorate the city was designed.
Some local attractions that should not be missed are the Jorge Newbery promenade, the municipal swim hole and La Quebrada Dam, which boasts a natural water reserve where angling and SCUBA diving may be practiced.
