Cordoba, Argentina

Córdoba is a city located in the geographical center of Argentina, in the foothills of the Sierras Chicas on the Suquía River.  It is the capital of Córdoba Province and the second-largest city in Argentina after the autonomous city of Buenos Aires.  Córdoba has many historical monuments preserved from Spanish colonial rule, especially buildings of the Roman Catholic Church. The most recognizable is perhaps the Jesuit Block (Spanish: Manzana Jesuítica), declared in 2000 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO which consists of a group of buildings dating from the 17th century, including the Colegio Nacional de Monserrat and the colonial university campus.
