Why Book Student Accommodation in Córdoba?
Córdoba is located in the middle of Argentina; it’s the second-largest city in the country. With approximately 1.3 million inhabitants, the city of Córdoba remains large without the overwhelming immensity of a city such as Buenos Aires. Declared in 2000 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city offers everything from extensive nightlife to over 100 museums and historical sites. Whether you’re checking out a Belgrano fútbol game at El Estadio Gigante de Alderbi or attending a concert at one of the city’s 50 theatres, there is never a moment of boredom.
Córdoba is home to the oldest university in Argentina and through the years, the city has earned the nickname “La Docta”, or “The Learned One”. With over 200,000 students, Córdoba maintains the feeling of a traditional and modern city while its population is one of the youngest and most lively in all of South America.
Because of many waves of immigration throughout Córdoba’s history, it is one of the most diversified areas of Argentina. Located in the Pampas region of Argentina, you can easily visit the Sierras de Córdoba, the mountainous district outside of the city, which is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Argentina. The city is also surrounded by national parks, offering enjoyment for those who prefer the outdoors as well as those who desire shopping, museums, or restaurants.

Must-Visit Places in Córdoba
The city’s central square, Plaza De San Martin, is a good place to start your time in Córdoba. You’ll find a statue of the famous General Jose de San Martin, the liberator of Argentina (also Chile and Peru) in the centre. For architecture buffs, there’s a 17th-century colonial cabildo there; it once housed the town police and now provides tourist information. Almost daily, you’ll find shows by bands or street performers and vendors plying their wares here. You can have a coffee, people-watch, or feed the pigeons in this attractive central plaza.
At the square, you will find the Cathedral of Córdoba, the oldest church in Argentina to be in continuous service, as it took more than two centuries to be built, starting from 1577. This National Historic Monument features frescoes painted by Argentine artists such as Emilio Caraffa and Manuel Cardeñosa, as well as a crypt where significant historical figures are buried, including General José María Paz, a military leader in the Argentine War of Independence and the Civil War.
The Museo De La Memoria will familiarise you with the devastating history of Argentina’s “Dirty War” during the 70s and 80s. Providing an enlightening look, the museum allows visitors to see some photos of the many thousands of people who disappeared at the hands of the government during this time of political turmoil. You can gain some insight into the military dictatorship of la Guerra Sucia and the kidnappings and tortures that occurred in secret. The stark space that houses the museum was used as a secret torture and detention location by the dreaded Department of Intelligence (D2). Families of those who were “disappeared” have donated the information and photos that are featured all over the walls there.
Located in the grandiose Beaux-Arts mansion, the Evita Fine Arts Museum contains over 500 works as well as a sculpture garden. You can walk through rooms filled with paintings by many important Argentine artists as well as the likes of Picasso and Goya. The museum was once the luxurious private residence of the aristocratic doctor and businessman Martin Ferreyra. The art collection alone is worth the visit, however, the magnificent palace also contains an impressive staircase and a lovely cafe with a balcony.
Transportation in Córdoba
Buses have been the sole method of public transportation in Córdoba since the abolition of the tramway in the 1960s. The city bus system operates on five lines (and three TrolleyBus lines). You will need to pay with a special bus card that you can buy at kiosks. There are also types of buses called “interurbanos”. These serve the suburbs of the city and charge accordingly to the distance to the terminal.
The city also has two types of taxi service providers, yellow taxis and green remises; they can be a comfortable way of getting around, with prices starting from around $6 for a 15-block ride. Under the rules, yellow taxis may be hailed for pick up on the street but green remises are dedicated to pickup up from a particular location after receiving a telephone request. However, these rules are loose and you may often successfully hail a green remis on the street.
