Córdoba, abbreviated as CBA, is a city located near the geographical center of Argentina, in the foothills of the Sierras Chicas mountains on the Suquía River, about 700 km west-northwest from Buenos Aires. It is the capital of Córdoba Province. Córdoba has been Argentina's third most important city since the end of the 16th century, and the second industrial center in the country, but retains many of its historical buildings dating from the colonial era.
As far as tourism is concerned, the capital of Córdoba and the entire province actually offer hundreds of inexhaustible activities for visitors to feel at ease. Circuits in the city include the pedestrian promenades joining San Martín Square with the ancient Cathedral, the historical Cabildo, Trejo House and several museums, to name a few.
In the outskirts of Córdoba, various adventure travel activities may be enjoyed, namely 4WD tours, silverside and trout fishing in its dams, mountain biking, paragliding or hiking around one of the prettiest regions in Argentina.
When the sun sets, the city presents an active cultural atmosphere and nightlife manifested in the theaters that present a wide range of recreational and artistic performances. The typical music style in Córdoba is called cuarteto (its greatest exponents are famous Mona Giménez and the late Rodrigo) and the way it is danced is another icon in our country. Fernet con cola (a drink made with a bitter aromatic spirit and coke), like the natives from Córdoba usually call it, is the typical welcome whose flavor conveys the true feeling of Córdoba.
