    Statue of General San Martin in Plaza San Martin

    Favorite thing: My favorite thing to do in Córdoba is to go to any of the hundreds of bars or restaurants that line the Río Cañada downtown. The atmosphere and attitude that greets you makes you feel at home and welcome to make a friend at any time.

    Fondest of all is the memory of my first kiss with my girlfriend, in a artistic little place with great music called La Toma Bar. Sadly, it has closed its doors for good since.

    Other great memories were making friends with people that ran a restaurant downtown called La nieta e' la Pancha. Such a great place to enjoy a meal and friends.

    Walking around Plaza San Martin onto 25 de Mayo and 9 de Julio in the evenings before going to see my girlfriend perform at Teatro Real.

    The people of Córdoba are the coolest I've ever met on this earth, and their city reflects their lives.

    Fondest memory: My best memories of Córdoba are of the wonderful woman I love. She made Córdoba come alive for me, so I have a mosaic of memories that warm my soul to picture.

    Needless to say I miss her more than anything.

    Beyond that, I miss the attitude of the people and the vibrance of the culture. Being a U.S. citizen, I see such a different philosophy of life in Córdoba. It's so much easier to communicate with others and competition isn't the driving force in every relationship.

    CÓRDOBA is the Capital of Commerce and History

    by lolitajane Written Nov 28, 2002

    Favorite thing: The first Argentinian university and also one of the first bishoprics were founded here. Buildings of interest are the Cathedral, the University, El Cabildo - The Town Hall -, the College of Monserrat, the churches of the Compañía de Jesús, San Francisco and San Roque. Córdoba has large commercial zones, residential areas and recreational areas like the Complejo Ferial and the wooded Parque Sarmiento.

    Fondest memory: My end-of-term trip.

    Favorite thing: El Valle de Calamuchita, en el medio de las Sierras Chicas, fue el lugar elegido por buena cantidad de inmigrantes alemanes, suizos y austríacos para instalarse y crear una especie de copia fiel de la Selva Negra.
    Es una zona poblada de acacias, arroyos y algarrobos. Las colectividades celebran fiestas como la del Chocolate Alpino y la Fiesta Nacional de la Cerveza, que se realiza en Octubre, al igual que la Oktoberfest, que se desarrolla en Alemania.

    Villa General Belgrano es ideal para tomar un té de peperina luego de haber sucumbido irremediablemente a los fiambres ahumados y a los jarros de cerveza.
    Si hay algo que no falta en Villa General Belgrano son los alojamientos, ya que cuenta con cantidad de hoteles. El lugar no es demasiado grande, e invita a una camita, sobre todo por la calle principal Julio A. Roca, donde están la mayoría de los comercios que ofrecen recuerdos regionales. Desde el Cerro Mirador, es posible observar la quebrada de la Zarzamora, que es un espacio ideal para el avistaje de aves. También se pueden pescar truchas en el río Los Reartes.

    40 kilómetros más adelante se encuentra La Cumbrecita, ubicada sobre las Sierras Grandes, a la vera del Cerro Champaquí. Se recomienda su recorrido a pie, a caballo o bicicleta. Es un paisaje lleno de nogales, pinos, abedules y castaños. La calle principal funciona como eje y las demás se abren en un pequeño abanico que conducen a los distintos remansos y arroyos del lugar. Esto se conjuga con los balcones de madera, los techos a dos aguas de las casas y el bosque. Se trata de un sitio ideal para descansar, la temperatura que es mucho calor durante el día y mucho frío durante la noche, sugiere la actividad fundamental que es caminar. El verde y el silencio predominan, acompañados por el susurro incesante del agua que siempre corre.
