The historical heritage of Córdoba, nicknamed “La Docta” because of its university, founded in 1613, is a veritable open book on Argentine history. The Manzana Jesuítica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a perfect example of this, offering visitors an immersion in Jesuit architecture and history in South America. Just a few steps away, the Cabildo and Córdoba Cathedral stand proudly, witnesses to the colonial era and jewels of Baroque architecture.

Córdoba also stands out for its artistic effervescence. The city’s streets are transformed into open-air galleries where graffiti, murals and artistic installations interact with the urban space, particularly in the Guemes district. The “Arte de Nuestra Gente” programme has given a boost to urban art, turning the city into a veritable living museum, accessible to all. The Museo Superior de Bellas Artes Evita, housed in the magnificent Palacio Ferreyra, completes this cultural offering by exhibiting works by local and international artists.
