It’s an old guidebook cliché, but Córdoba really is an intriguing mix of old and new. Where else will you find DJs spinning electro-tango in crowded student bars next to 17th-century colonial Jesuit ruins?

Despite being a whopping 444 miles (715km) away from Buenos Aires, Córdoba is anything but a provincial backwater – in 2006 the city was awarded the hefty designation of Cultural Capital of the Americas, and the title fit like a glove. Four excellent municipal galleries – dedicated to emerging, contemporary, classical and fine art respectively – are within easy walking distance of each other and the city center.
