This was on the map from the Tourist Bus and recommended to see. We got off the bus at the nearest stop and walked to what we thought would be worth seeing. Very disappointed as it is just a cross with a lot of dead...More

Wouldn't say the cross is a must see, although the streets leading up to the plaza made the journey worthwhile. Like some other commentators noted, it is a just a cross in a courtyard.

We was walking around a neighborhood, when we arrived to this square. The monument actually scared us. It is impressive, and it is more at night. It seems like living 50 years ago.

I'd heard of this place when looking for stuff in Córdoba and it was absolutely great! It happened during Holy Week which is a city overtake type thing, very impressive. Situated in an almost enclosed square it's just right there in the middle. So simple...More
