If you are a history lover, the Jesuit Estancias Road is an excellent option to discover the history behind the Jesuits arrival at Córdoba. Whether you are keen on outdoor activities, Córdoba has landscapes that worth visiting by a walk or horseback riding through the Hills. In the evening, do not miss the opportunity to explore the nearby neighbourhoods such as Paseo Güemes or Nueva Córdoba, both of them offer quite a rich cultural side in addition to a gastronomic pole where it is possible to taste regional dishes.
