 A garden of experiences 

Originally here there was only one railway station. What gave it the name is this place:  Estación Ferroviaria Miguel Thea . However, after constructions and donations made by the Giardino family, it was decided to change the name.  This family of Italians  knew how to discover a real Cordovan wonder. This is due to the modification of the name of the villa, in 1964. Removing as the definitive name  “Villa Giardino” . However, it is no coincidence that Giardino means garden in Italian. Due to its large amount of diversity of flora and fauna, Villa Giardino is called  “the garden of Punilla” .
