In the heart of Cordoba.

Must visit and walk around. I love how they made the floor simulating the shades of the buildings. Really nice.

Good for sightseeing. Maybe just one time. We walked around with our dogs, but they had no place to hang out in since all the grass areas were fenced off. Keeps it clean, but no one can even relax on the grass.

Don't expect to chill out there, it is not worth it, especially the shops (fast food mainly) all around

Surrounded by historic buildings, restaurants, and shopping, this is a busy place. Hawkers, street artists, and panhandlers vie for your attention. Shady benches beckon, but beware of the birds in the trees above. We got dropped on more than once.

This Plaza is a main focal point but it really needs something to liven it up and make it prettier. Rather a disappointment

One of the main squares of the city, this place its a bustling area that has from several old buildings to a flock of shops all around. The area its under minor maintenance all year round but still its not properly address in terms of cleaning and gardening. Still, its a nice place to admire the local atmosphere with plenty... More

I sat in the plaza for some time watching people and listening to people play music. It's a great place to rest after walking around seeing the sights. There is a lot of shopping close by to here. You can find most anything you may be looking for close by.

The streets around the square are pedestrian oriented, so a good area to to a little stolling or people watching. The square is nothing special, but is well maintained and reasonably clean. The usual centrepiece statue, and a Catedral on one side, worth spending a couple of hours here. Sadly lacking a good choice of restaurants and cafes, but there... More

I was hoping to see a clean plaza with a lot of terraces, bars and restaurants. Not here. One beautiful tree and a lot of people and a lot of noise. Nothing special.

It was planned by Lieutenant Governor Lorenzo Suárez de Figueroa in 1577, four years after the founding of the city, when the first urban layout was performed. It covers an apple and is named in honor of one of the main heroes of Argentina and the Americas. In the square, we can find a wonderful equestrian monument bronze sits on... More
