Smack dab in the middle of Argentina, lies the university town of Cordoba.
Unlike Rosario, it was immediately apparent there’s a lot to do in Cordoba, beyond a day trip to visit the childhood home of Che Guevara in nearby Alta Gracia.
For starters, Argentina’s second largest city features the Jesuit Block, which is made up of historic churches, as well as university buildings and residences. In 2000, the Jesuit Block was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Being that it’s a city filled with college students from all over Argentina, there’s a palpable sense of youth culture present, in addition to all the restaurants, bars, and dance clubs that cater to students.
Add to that dozens of museums and parks, and it felt like a very livable city. If I were to return to live in Argentina, I’d pick Cordoba over Buenos Aires.
If you have to pick a place to live in Argentina for a year, which city would you choose? Why?
