Córdoba was founded 441 YEARS AGO ON THE 6th of July OF 1573 by Jerónino Luis De Cabrera. This city is the second-largest city in Argentina. Beyond the historic center, Córdoba is a city with all the conveniences of a modern metropolis of 1.300.000 inhabitants.
It is considered young and trendy due to its large student population, revolutionary for its history but an industrial and thriving metropolis as well. The city has received the nickname of “the Docta” referring to the doctor degree because the National University of Córdoba, founded in 1613, is the first institution of higher education in Argentina and one of the oldest in Latin America.
All of historical buildings included in what’s called the Jesuit Block (Spanish: Manzana Jesuítica), were declared as World Heritage by UNESCO in 2000 for its beauty and importance in Argentinian history. The “cordobes” (people from Córdoba) are famous for being easy-going, extroverted, good tempered and friendly.
