Nestled in the foothills of the Sierras Chicas in the heart of Argentina, Cordoba is a charming city with a culture that defines Argentina as a nation. Visitors might begin their journey at the heart of the city in Plaza de San Martin, home to the Cathedral, Cabildo, and the valiant statue of Jose de San Martin, the hero of Argentinean independence. From there, set out to explore the streets on foot and be sure to stop into one of the city’s great restaurants to sample the local fare. Try some hot and fluffy empanadas or asado (barbecued beef) slathered with Chimichurri, a signature sauce of herbs, garlic, and vinegar.
If you feel like you might have eaten a bit too much, burn some calories with a walk along La Canada, the iconic stone canal that cuts through Cordoba. Or visit the largest public park in the city at Sarmiento Park, home to a beautiful rose garden, a 355-foot-tall lighthouse, a tranquil duck lake, and two inspiring art museums.
