Córdoba is the second largest city in Argentina, home to approximately 1.6 million residents. The city is also a major center for foreign trade as well as home to several universities, and thus home to students from around the country. Although not as exciting as Buenos Aires, Córdoba does have the charms of a mid-sized city and is a great escape from the traffic and craziness of BA. It’s also located just 1 1/2 hours from the Sierras Chicas and tons of outdoor activities.
