Tuneles de Taninga, Province of Cordoba

(95 reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
An engineering feat provides access to the city, known as Tuneles de Taninga. The five tunnels were built in the 1930s in an effort to connect the city to the rest of Cordoba province. The dirt road, National Route 20, that connects the tunnels is flanked by low desert brush and surrounded by the expansive landscape of the rising hillsides. Journey to the top through each of the five tunnels by car or by bus; the view at the top will not disappoint. On the way, watch for a deserted quartz mine and a small village with a handful of local restaurants. Use our Cordoba trip builder to visit Tuneles de Taninga on your trip to Cordoba, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Yes or Yes missed. Recommend a good vehicle. They are building a new road. The current is gravel with a single against: constantly much saw that is solved along slowly. The views are wonderful and panoramic. That Yes, perhaps those who suffer from vertigo do not pass it quite right when you reach the last 2 tunnels. Same, courage, because what you see is not to be missed. You can see La Rioja. I recommend: to the ida (in the morning) book in Parador Chivito free. The best of Córdoba. Back, you pass and eat there. They already have it ready. The same Ntra Sra. de el Rosario chapel which dates from 1600. It is open. All this in the same way. It is a way out to make tranqui, enjoying every meter, and spend the whole day.
