Cordoba is a city located in the geographical centre of Argentina, in the foothills of the Sierras Chicas on the Suquía River. It is the second largest city in Argentina with about 1.4 million people and is a heady mix of religion, education, and modern industry. Córdoba has many historical monuments preserved from Spanish colonial rule, especially buildings of the Roman Catholic Church, all resting in a backdrop of red-brick high-rises and boxed balconies with the occasional Gothic spire or colonial facade. Beneath all the history, lies a young, vibrant city with a rich culture, great bars and restaurants.
While in the city, one can indulge in some of the best tours in Cordoba including a tour to the Jesuit Block which is a former Jesuit reduction built by missionaries and a tour to the Jesuit Cathedral, whose altar is made of stone and silver from Potosí. Every ornament inside is made of gold and the roof is all painted with different images from the Bible. Cordoba has a rich culture, the traces of which can be seen in the popular music classical, jazz, rock and pop, operas, folk music as well as newer styles of electronic music and reggaeton. In addition to this, Córdoba is sometimes referred to as "the nightlife city” (or "the city that never sleeps"), because of its wide range of clubs and teenage matinées (dancing clubs). Visiting Cordoba and experiencing its buildings and the surrounding beautiful hills is a once in a lifetime experience and visiting this place should be on the itinerary of every avid traveller.
