Founded in 1573,
Cordoba is a city with a population of more than 2 million people. It is
situated in the geographical center of Argentina and is known as the
colonial capital of the country. Because of its proximity to the mountains,
Cordoba is a perfect base for excursions into the natural beauty of the Andes,
or even the Pampas 100 km to the south.
Although it was the Argentine center
of arts and learning before being surpassed by Buenos Aires, the city has few
tourists and a mild climate, making it ideal for study. Beautiful Spanish
cathedrals and buildings throughout the city and an impressive landscape made up
of valleys, lakes and little rivers complement the city's independent spirit and
Cordoba has grown significantly over the last decade, as many new industries
have settled down. The construction of modern buildings, shopping centers and
new neighborhoods has changed the appearance of the city somewhat Its culture,
shopping, and active nightlife make Cordoba a wonderful destination for Enforex
