Capital of the province of the same name, the historical city of Cordoba was born from the desire to connect Upper Peru to the Río de la Plata via the Royal Road, better known as the Inca Trail. Cordoba was founded in 1573, its architecture consisting mainly of convents and churches. Nowadays, it is the second most important city of Argentina. The sierras of the Río Suquía Valley are a trekking and agriculture high spot, with average maximum temperature of 24ºC and minimum of 11ºC. The area attracts visitors keen on history, rural culture and landscapes. Popularly known as the “Wise”, with the biggest number of universities in the country, is also nicknamed the “bells’ city” due to its Franciscans and Dominicans churches.
In its streets and avenues, colonial architecture blends with modern buildings and green spaces such as the Sarmiento Park, which was designed in the late nineteenth century. Cordoba is also an important industrial centre where the metallurgical industry is highly developed, with Renault and Fiat’s headquarters still in the city.
