The city of Córdoba, capital of the province in Argentina of the same name, has a history of culture and intellectualism. Find out the top things to see and do here, whether you’d like to catch a tango performance, roam around Spanish-colonial buildings, immerse yourself in art and music or check out the trendy restaurants of the bohemian Güemes neighborhood.
This hip neighborhood in the heart of the city is full of bohemian restaurants and bars, making it an ideal spot to grab a bite to eat. Casual Argentine cuisine is served all day at Bruncheria, from bruschetta, jamón and freshly squeezed juice in the morning, to pizza and vino tinto in the evening. Its retro blue-and-yellow styling extends to the terrace, which is open until 8pm every day. If you’re in the area on the weekend, be sure to check out the colorful artisans’ market.
A landscaped canal bisects Córdoba, and the canal-facing street of Marcelo T de Alvear in the downtown area is chock-full of bars for every type of reveler. One of the best is X Bar, a dimly lit locals-only spot with second-hand furniture and vintage adverts on its walls. Order a kiwi daiquiri, which tastes so good it could pass as a breakfast smoothie.
