  • The House of the Marquis of Sobremonte is in the heart of the city of Córdoba. It retains its basic structure and furniture of the colonial era. Each themed room includes tables, chairs, mirrors, beds with canopies, trunks, utensils of silver and alpaca. Pictures with frames painted with gold, two patios, the rooms of slaves. Sale $15 entry. Very interesting.

  • Cordoba (Argentina) summarizes history and landscapes where you go. And their natural places refers also to the Cordoba of Spain. That is called so, and why Miguel de Falla also adopted to live.

The House, whose use was commercial and family was built by Don José Rodríguez in 1752. Don Rafael Núñez, Marqués de Sobremonte, Viceroy of the Río de la Plata and Governor Governor of Córdoba del Tucumán lived here between 1783 and 1797. In 1797 the House passed to auction becoming the prosperous merchant Benito Fragueiro. MHN was declared in 1941 already in property of the province of Córdoba. And the Provincial Marqués de Sobremonte historical Museum was opened in 1944. House stands out for its cantilevered balcony in wrought iron and colonial tiled gable roof. It has 5 yards and 26 rooms hosting collections of ancient weapons, American paintings, religious imagery, and the antique furniture. The Organization of the courtyards and rooms reflects the patriarchal culture and the religious fervor of that time.

  • Cute is the Museum, but they do not provide explanatory brochure and posters in the halls is poor. And they do not allow to take pictures without flash.
