Welcome to Villa General Belgrano


The annual Oktoberfest held here during the first two weeks of October draws beer lovers from all over the world. In summertime the village slowly fills with vacationers enjoying the tranquil streets and evergreen-dotted countryside. Unless you’re really excited about microbrew beer, torta selva negra (Black Forest cake) and goulash, Villa General Belgrano makes a fine day trip from Córdoba or nearby La Cumbrecita. Despite its decidedly Germanic flavor, you’d be lucky to hear any of the modern-day inhabitants speaking the language of the old country.
