To be candid, if you find yourself in Cordoba for the day you may struggle to find activities to fill your hours. The city is the second-largest in Argentina and known for its Spanish colonial architecture — and lack of things to do. Here’s are a few worthwhile things to do in the city to ensure you leave with good memories.
Avoid the notorious heat in Cordoba by ducking inside the air-conditioned Evita Fine Arts Museum. The museum holds pieces from artists such as Goya and Picasso and you can easily spend a few hours wandering through more than 500 pieces of art. Be sure to check out the sculpture garden out back.
Dine in an Alley
Set inside a converted alleyway, El Papagayo Restaurant is an elegant, tasteful lunch and dinner restaurant well-known as one of the best eateries in the city. They serve three- and 11-course tasting menus with an optional wine pairing that are well worth a trip into the heart of the city.
Take a Free Walking Tour
There’s no better way to get a grasp on the city than by taking a free walking tour. LaDocta leads two free walking tours a day at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., exploring the historic center and the bohemian/student neighborhood.
Go on a (Cheap) Shopping Spree
