Key places to know in Córdoba

We tell you what are the places you have to visit yes or yes. Cordoba is wide and diverse, but there are key points you can't miss.


There are so many  Cordoba corners  that open to tourism that it is difficult to rank them all. That's why we select the best places in Córdoba to put together your tour, taking into account the natural beauties and cultural proposals.

City of Cordoba

Before starting the  tour  d  or  through the tourist regions, let's pass through the historic capital of the province. Born from the desire to link Alto Peru with the Rio de la Plata, through what became known as the Camino Real.

It's a big, modern city, and it has a lot to see. One of its main architectural and cultural attractions is the Jesuit Apple, declared a World Heritage Site of Humanity.


The Paravachasca area, the Calamuchita area and the Sierra del Sur area make up what is known as the Great Lakes region. It is distinguished by bringing together nature and culture and it houses the only National Park that houses the province. Quebrada del Condorito Park, where a population of over 70 Andean condors surprises visitors with its flight.

The Los Molinos Dam, the reservoirs and mountain rivers and the sanctuaries and churches of the stature of the Jesuit Estancia Alta Gracia, are some of the must-see tourist sites.

Sierras Girls

Located in the immediate north of the Capital, it is one of the tourist regions that grew the most in recent years. It has emblematic cities such as Rio Ceballos, Unquillo,  Villa Allende , Salsipuedes, Juárez Celman or Colonia Caroya, known for its salames, and the famous Camino del Cuadrado, which transports us on a unique route to La Falda, in the Punilla Valley.

North and Northwest

It is a fascinating region that is distinguished by a myriad of trails traced by history. Also for the charm of landscapes overflowing with legends. Centuries of culture are concentrated in northern Córdoba, materialized in towns and cities, where religious and artisan tradition maintains the Creole essence.

Localities such as Ischilín, Tulumba, San Pedro Norte and Cañada del Río Pinto stand out for preserving a colonial style, which safeguards the past. In these villages, visitors can enjoy typical handcrafted products such as leather, basketry, ceramics and wood, as well as the opportunity to taste traditional cuisine and vibrate with folk music.

Lagoon Mar Chiquita

Cordoba has no exit to the ocean, but it does have its own sea. In the northeast of the province, in the  Ansenuza region , the largest closed basin in Latin America is located in the middle of a plain. We are talking about the Laguna de Mar Chiquita, a salt water mirror with an extension of about 6000 km2, which is the habitat of 25% of bird species that exist in the country. It is located in the northeast of the province and, from the Capital, is accessed by provincial route 17.

The plain on which it sits changes its morphology as it passes the overflows of the rivers Dulce, Xanae, Suquía and the advancement of the lagoon. This area, due to its natural wealth and its biodiversity, was declared a natural reserve of the province. Miramar is the only town in this region. In the area, in addition to ecotourism, visitors can carry out activities related to health tourism, taking advantage of the healing properties of the water and mud of the lagoon.
