Cordoba and the Central Sierras: Fact file


Visit Us

When to go

It can be stiflingly hot in summer, Dec-Mar. Outdoor visits are much more pleasant in the spring and autumn months, with plenty of sun.

Language

Spanish

Getting local currency

Argentine Peso. Notes can be withdrawn from ATMs (many on Plaza san Martín) using a UK credit or debit card. Limits may be lower than your UK bank allows. There are also banks and money exchanges (casas de cambio)  where you can exchange US dollars cash; rates for euros and sterling are harder to find and frequently poor.

Time difference

GMT -3 hours. Sometimes daylight saving is observed in the summer, but this is announced ad hoc on a year-on-year basis.

Getting there

A flight from Buenos Aires to Córdoba takes 1 hour.

Combines with

Mendoza in Argentina’s prime wine-producing region (daily direct flights 1hr 15mins); Santiago, the capital of Chile, (daily flights 1hr 30mins). 

Key events

FICA Craft Market: First three weeks of Apr, close to Chateau Carrera stadium, Córdoba.

Book Fair: This takes pace in Córdoba in mid-Sept and attracts some well-known authors.
