How to Reach

By plane

The International Airport Ingeniero Talavella, also called Pajas Blancas is 10 km (6 mi) north of the city center. There are flights to several towns in Argentina, to Lima, Santiago de Chile, Santa Cruz de la Sierra (Bolivia) and Porto Alegre (Brazil), though now there are fewer flights than in the 90s because of the economic crisis. If you come from overseas you must 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 (shuttle bus service relatively expensive, more than half the price of a taxi).

From the Cordoba airport there is a normal bus to city center (A5, 1,50 AR$), a minibus service (about AR$ 5 per person) and taxis(about AR$65).

By Train

Until the 1980's Cordoba was an important railway center with many connections. Today, the only line left is to Buenos Aires, via Villa María and Rosario, two times a week. The train is very cheap ($25 for tourist class) in comparison to buses, but the journey is about 5 hours longer because of the deteriorated rails. There is also a daily local train to Villa María ($4). Train station (there were many, but most of them are out of use now) is near the omnibus terminal, on Boulevard Perón, another in the suburb of Barrio Ferreyra (south-east of the city).

By Car

The city is connected with most greater towns by good asphalted routes. A motorway to Rosario is being built to connect Cordoba with the Buenos Aires -Santa Fe highway; it's already done until Oncativo and between Carcarañá and Rosario. Another motorway links Cordoba with Carlos Paz. There is a plan to build other motorways to Santa Fe, Tucumán, and Río Cuarto.

By Bus

Buses are now the most popular public transport. The omniibus 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 (5.5 hours) and Rosario (1.5 hour). Also, the local buses to the suburbs stop here, another stop is at Mercado Sur near Plaza San Martí

Places to Visit

Jesuit Block and Estancias

The UNESCO World Heritage Jesuit Block and Estancias of Cordoba refer to a peerless ensemble of university, church and ranch estate landmarks built up over the course of 150 years, from the 17th century on. Access to all the sites on the official UNESCO inscription are relatively simple to access and visit.

Paseo del Buen Pastor

The recreational and commercial heart of Cordoba contains several amazing cultural monuments and buzzes with activity day and night. Come to eat, drink, shop, stroll and enjoy the pulse of the city.

Parque Sarmiento

This incredible public park is the largest in Cordoba and lush home of the Emilio Caraffa Provincial Fine Arts Museum and Evita Fine Arts Museum.

Emilio Caraffa Provincial Fine Arts Museum

A Neoclassical masterpiece built in 1916, the Emilio Caraffa Provincial Fine Arts Museum is one of the most important such institutions in all of Argentina. Prominent local artists and international masters like Picasso and Goya all receive ample wall space here.

Monasterio de Santa Teresa

Cordoba has a ton of architectural vestiges left over from the Spanish colonial era. The Monasterio de Santa Teresa is clearly one of the most impressive. The cream and pink Carmelite convent is home to a museum of religious art and a courtyard that wafts with orange blossom and pomegranate.
