Córdoba is the second largest city in Argentina and is the capital of the Cordoba province. It is in the heart of the Argentine territory on the Pampas. The city is surrounded by valleys, formed up by three main mountain groups. It is known for the colonial buildings in the center as well as for the beautiful hills in the surroundings.
It is very easy to reach Córdoba from other parts of Argentina because of its position in the country's geographical center.
The International Airport Ingeniero Talavella, also called Pajas Blancas is 10 km north of the city center. There are flights to several towns in Argentina, to Lima, Santiago de Chile, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Porto Alegre, São Paulo, and even Madrid, though now there are fewer flights than in the 90s because of the economic crisis. Anyway , if you come from overseas you may change in Buenos Aires or Santiago de Chile. If you fly through Buenos Aires you will likely need to transfer from Ezeiza airport to Aeroparque Jorge Newbery.
The city is connected with most greater towns by good asphalted routes. A motorway links Cordoba to Rosario and from there, with the Buenos Aires - Santa Fe highway. Another motorway links Córdoba with Carlos Paz. There is a plan to build other motorways to Santa Fe, Tucumán, and Río Cuarto.
Buses are now the most popular public transport. The omnibus terminal is at the crossing of Boulevard Illía with Boulevard Perón near the Río Suquía. There are direct connections to all greater cities and tourist centers of Argentina, with the exception of Ushuaia (you will have to change in Río Gallegos). Very frequent buses to Buenos Aires, Salta and Rosario. Reservations can be made here Also, the local buses to the suburbs stop here, another stop is at Mercado Sur near Plaza San Martín.
Since the abolition of the tramway in the 1960s, public transport is limited to buses. They now are divided in "corridors", each of them is associated with a color and a letter: Red (R), Orange (N), Blue (A), Green (V), Yellow (C) and celeste (E). There are trolleybuses, too (A, B, and C), and a "Transversal" line (T).
What to see
There are many colonial buildings in the city center, most of them built by the Jesuits in 17th and 18th centuries. The Manzana de los Jesuitas, declared Humanity's patrimony by the UNESCO, is a whole block of such buildings, between 27 de Abril, Obispo Trejo, Caseros and Av. Vélez Sársfield.
