Tuneles de Taninga, Province of Cordoba

4.6
#21 of 77 in Sightseeing in Province of Cordoba
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.

  • There to support the road in bad condition and handle with care, but the final reward is the hermoas view of the Rioja plain beyond down.

  • Beautiful to explore that if the road is Bravo, but sight is paid by the very beautiful condor... tunnels height

  • The mountainous landscape and the vegetation native and monotonous accompany us in this journey through the old road to La Rioja. We climbed in height, the way outlines the slopes of hills and flows through picturesque stone tunnels, engineering works that survive to the projects of those who made them... Suddenly the landscape is finished and before our eyes, it appears the empty and down a long green, the plains of La Rioja. And in the sky a small group of condors. Emotion overwhelms us and alboroza. Just get out of the car and look... In that way, since we left the paved road, we saw an extinct volcano, vibrant villages, a dinning room where Lord coals and roast kid, an ancient Church, simple and quiet people... To return!
