This is the Cordovan Cabildo. A historic building located in the heart of the Cordovan capital . He is one of the last of its kind standing to remain as vestiges of our past. The first structure designated for this purpose was started in 1588, and was a modest adobe and thatched roof structure typical of the era colonial in spanish America. The current building is due to the desire of Rafael Núñez, whom we all know by his nobility, Marques de Sobremonte.
Over time it underwent modifications and interventions that became what is the Cabildo as we know it today. It has an extensive front corridor with fifteen arcades. The structure is organized around two courtyards surrounded by resolved galleries with semicircular arches on the ground floor and Ionian columns on the first floor.
This work had various and varied roles in the operation of the city, but it was always the center of civic activity of the provincial capital. In addition to having served as Cabildo during the period of Spanish domination, he was also a prison , police headquarters, auditorium, information center tourist and museum. His function was always adapted to the need of the time. And therefore, if you lean your ear on its walls, they will tell you what they heard and lived in all their centuries of life.
It currently works as a Cabildo Cultural Center . It is located in front of the renowned Plaza San Martín , also called Plaza Mayor de la Ciudad. On this tour you can visit various artistic and visual works related to the history of Cordoba. Heterogeneous cultural activities are carried out on the premises.
