During our two week trip to Argentina, we traveled from Buenos Aires to Villa Maria to visit my grandmother. Then we continued on to Cordoba to visit some other people.

The pictures on this page are from the days we spent in Cordoba, which is the second largest city in Argentina with over 1 million residents. The city is the capital of the Argentine province of Cordoba and is located at the center of the country near the Sierras Chicas mountains.

Some of the main attractions in Cordoba are the Patio Olmos shopping mall, the Ecipsa Tower office building, and the Cordoba Zoo.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Cordoba which I believe is a 3 or 4 star hotel. Either way it was really nice with clean rooms, soft beds, and nicely stocked mini bars.

During our visit we took a tour of the Cordoba University also known as La Universidad De Cordoba which was founded by Fray Fernando Trejo and Sanabria. The most well known part of the university is the Colegio Nacional De Monserrat. The Universidad Nacional De Cordoba is the oldest university in Argentina and was founded in 1610. In 1955 an astronomy observatory named Observatorio Nacional Argentino, was opened.

After our few days in Cordoba, we checked out of the Holiday Inn, packed our stuff in the rented Renault van and headed back to Villa Maria to visit my grandmother again before we finished our trip in Buenos Aires.
