  • 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.

  • Beautiful House that belonged to the Marquis of Sobremonte. Preserved with taste, style and good service. A Pearl still struggling in the midst of modernity. It's really beautiful. It has no significant changes. At a time they performed plays that were true delights set at the time. There were concerts of ancient music... To be small capacity gave a tone of greater intimacy. We immerse ourselves in the history when you walk through its doors... The best of the city. It is worth your visit.
