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 central Argentina’s rolling pampas and rocky sierra.

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.
