Córdoba is a city which really comes to life when you take a walk through the streets of its many different neighborhoods, each revealing its many charms through the people and places that inhabit them. Some of its neighborhoods are vast and sprawling and some don’t take up much surface area at all, so it can get confusing to know for sure when you have crossed the boundaries.
Home to the football stadium of one of Argentina’s most popular football clubs, Club Atlético Belgrano, Alberdi is one of the most traditional barrios in Córdoba, and also one of the biggest. Alberti has a lot of historic monuments, such as the church of María Auxiliadora and the Plaza Colón. Although known as one of the more ‘upper class’ neighborhoods, with over 30,000 inhabitants, you will still see all of walks of life here and is a great place to mingle.
Alta Córdoba in the north of Córdoba is one of the city’s most populated areas, and is also one of the oldest, founded at the end of the 19th century. Located just half a kilometer from the river Suquía, the area has also become widely known for its vivid cultural, gastronomic and nightlife offerings which have come into full bloom in recent years. The area has a lot of theatres, cultural centres and art bars so is a great place to go for an evening out.
The oldest and most historical neighborhood in Córdoba, it’s also the most important. Officially established in 1577, just 4 years after the city was founded, this is where you’ll find the majority of important historical buildings such as the Manzana Jesuitica and is also one of the most popular tourist and commercial areas. Head to Plaza San Martin to start your exploration of the area and maybe grab a quick chocolate caliente in one of the quaint cafes.
Nueva Córdoba is where you’ll find some of the city’s best museums, such as the Museo Superior de Bellas Artes Evita and the Museo Provincial de Ciencias Naturales. It’s also one of the city’s most dynamic areas, which remains popular amongst the city’s inhabitants for living, working and socializing. If you take a trip to Plaza España on a Friday night, you’re guaranteed to have a good time mingling with locals and will probably walk away with at least 20 new friends by the end of the night.
