Commonly known as La Docta (“The Scholar”), for its emphasis on higher education, Cordoba is Argentina’s second largest city.
Founded in the late 16th century by Spanish explorer Jerónimo Luis de Cabrera, the city rests among the rolling pampas and rocky sierra of central Argentina.
Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city’s famed Jesuit Block contains a colonial baroque church and flower-lined courtyards.
The Franciscan Order also built fine chapels in the city center. Argentina’s oldest university was founded here in 1613 by the Jesuit Order.
