    This is Diagonal Buenos Aires, the main street in the city and has 100 m with a roof. This was made for the first international photography exposition called Cita 64 on 1964.
    You can drive here at daytime, at night this place becomes a walk place. Restaurants have their tables outside and you can enjoy some shows on the street.

    This hill has 1979 m height and from the halting place in its base you can climb it in around 3 hours and a half. You must register before to climb it.
    It's a private natural park open all year long and you should go up the hill with someone who knows the place or a guide.

    Capilla del Monte is 110km to the north of Cordoba city and it's 810 km from Buenos Aires city. If you take a bus or rent a car from Buenos Aires you will come from route 9 until Cordoba city and after you must take route 38. You can also fly from Buenos Aires city to Cordoba city and after take a bus or drive.
    The bus terminal is really closed to the centre of the city and it's tiny if you compare it with Buenos Aires Retiro station.
    Once in the city you can rent a bicycle, get some friends with cars or just walk. You also have some local bus to get tourist places

    Since long time ago the area near the Cerro Uritorco is known as a U.F.O. watching place, Capilla del Monte has many stories about them. We don't know if it's true or just some people's imagination but this is something you will hear about while staying here.
    The map is a map to Cerro Uritorco and surrounding areas.
