Where to stay in Alta Gracia

Alta Gracia's lodging options remain relatively limited, a small problem since most visitors come on day trips from nearby Cordoba. If you prefer to base your vacation in Alta Gracia itself, you can choose between several decent hotels and a variety of rental apartments, most of which offer free Wi-Fi, secure parking, and access to a private enclosed garden. For more choices, explore the surrounding towns, like La Cumbrecita or Los Olivares.

  • Impossible walk around Alta Gracia and don't see El Tajamar. In the middle of the city, is a great place to seat with friends and have a picnic. Nice place to take pictures.  more »
  • Easy to find it, it help to find the toursim office hidden within it. The non natural lake and park could be nice if the garbage would not be dropped in the grass  more »

  • The breakwater is a historical place and gives a glimpse of what was in their home city. It is a pretty big park. Ideal for Matt shared with loved ones. It has a couple of games for children. The only criticism is that a little bit of cleaning the lagoon lacks.

  • To go with family or friends, a late, take a few mates, have a good time. And in the evenings there is good lighting. The lagoon is careful. Note: Beware of insecurity... look after your stuff!

  • It is an artificial lake with a beautiful and tranquil wooded front Park. It was part of the complex of the Jesuit estancia, as a kind of large water tank. Paddleboats are rented for a ride for him. Nice place to relax and take Matt to the shadow.
