Córdoba, Argentina


Córdoba, Argentina.

Why now?

Seven hours inland from Buenos Aires, Córdoba is the
Argentine capital’s more low-key but equally attractive cousin. As
one can guess from the city’s name, it’s peppered with grandiose
Spanish colonial architecture throughout, blending Andalusian and South American styles. While BA
has always been the Latin American heartthrob – and
has seen a resurgence in popularity of late – we can’t recommend
Argentina’s second-largest city enough.

Don’t miss…

A trip to Córdoba would be incomplete without checking out the
17th-century Jesuit Block (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) but be
sure to attend an event at the Paseo del Buen Pastor cultural
centre too. The space that has formerly housed everything from a
monastery to a prison is now chock-a-block full of art, and a great
place for cocktails and concerts come evening. The Picasso-filled
Evita Fine Arts Museum – a museum set in a former mansion – is
another must.

For the best dinner in town, make a booking at El
, a minimalist favourite with artful plating that’s set
in a narrow brick-walled room.
