There's no shortage of things to see and do during your visit to Cordoba. With its exquisite balance of timeless tradition and chic modernism, there is something for nearly everyone in this energetic city. A good way to begin your exploration is a walking tour of Cordoba. Start at the heart of the historic quarter, the Plaza San Martin. Some of Cordoba's most significant buildings surround the Plaza. The San Martin Theatre, built in 1891, is the oldest theatre of its kind in Argentina. Originally an opera house, the theatre has superior acoustics and is the current home of a variety of symphony concerts and stage productions. The Cordoba Cathedral is an eclectic structure that features architectural elements dating back to as early as 1577, but as its completion took over two hundred years, it incorporates several different architectural styles. The Monasterio de Santa Teresa is just off Plaza San Martin. Formerly a Carmelite nunnery, it now houses the Juan de Tejeda Religious Art Museum. Guides show visitors around the courtyards, gardens and former cells of the nuns, which feature religious art.

Demonstrating the "fusion of European and indigenous values," the Estancias provide a unique view into colonial South America.
