The city of Cordoba lies just over an hour’s flight west of Buenos Aires in the very centre of the country and is Argentina's second most important city. The historic centre of Cordoba has many fine well-preserved buildings from the colonial period and just north of the city is also the 'Road of the Jesuit Estancias', which are now listed historic monuments dating back to the 17th century. People visit Cordoba for the beautiful mountain landscapes and fertile valleys of the Sierras de Cordoba. The countryside is famous for cattle-ranching, producing much of the country's world famous beef. Just a short drive from the city are several very good estancias offering riding, walking, cattle round-ups and even polo, away from the summer heat of Buenos Aires in relaxed and very comfortable surroundings.
Estancias & Gauchos
Estancias and ranch life are the backbone of Argentinean culture and history. In most areas of the country you can find ranches, rearing top-quality beef using traditional methods. In the Cordoba region there are many excellent estancias, where horse riding is a major activity, and you can ride with the gauchos on the ranch, learning more about their daily life.
Those who don’t ride will find that there are plenty of other fun activities to keep them busy -fishing, hiking and white water rafting are all available.
