Historic Sightseeing in Cordoba City
When it comes to getting to know Cordoba city there is plenty of interesting historic alternatives to explore.

San Martin is the main square of the city, where the typical idiosyncrasy of the people from Cordoba can be found.

Cordobeses, the way people from Cordoba are called locally, have been always regarded as friendly and open-minded citizens.

The Cabildo –the old Town Hall- is in front of the main square where you can find beautiful gardens, rooms and halls where different art exhibitions from local artists usually take place.
 
 
 Right on the left of The Cabildo, across a narrow road called Pasaje Santa Catalina and keeping alive the colonial environment of the XVIth Century you will find the Cathedral, one of the most important landmarks of the city. Inside the church you will see impressive and majestic drawings, paintings and statues. Its architecture includes a number of aesthetic styles which goes from neoclassic and certain indoamerican influences, discovered at the main door and towers to a romantic and baroque mixed style recognized in the dome.


The figures of the ancient buildings are projected over the esplanade of the square. It is not necessary to walk long distances to sightsee other historical places as most of these landmarks are not far away from the main square above mentioned.
 


Another attractive visit is the Museum of Religious Art Juan de Tejeda located in El Convento de las Carmelitas descalzas de Santa Teresa de Jesús. The museum displays the most important collection of religious art that once belonged to the Cathedral’s treasure.

One block from San Martin square, in Rosario de Santa Fe Street, you can visit the Marqués de Sobremonte Historic State Museum. This is a beautiful colonial house where Don Rafael Nuñez Castillo, Marqués de Sobremonte, governor of Cordoba lived between 1780 and 1796. The building gathers important pieces of the colonial period, including religious art pieces, weapons, china, musical instruments, furniture, paintings and silverware. It also includes an important library. This a valuable building characterized by its architectural quality and as for being an important icon of the colonial period which invites the visitor to get familiar with the way of life held centuries ago. Another remarkable place is the Founder’s square, recently remodeled where there is a statue of Don Jerónimo Luis de Cabrera, Córdoba’s founder.
