The few architecturally interesting places in Cordoba appear to be mainly churches. The Catedral is certainly large enough and it is attractive. I can't say I was blown away by it though. Still worth a look though.

The cathedral and the "Iglesia Catedral" are the same site--the city cathedral in the San Martin square. It is not particularly impressive, but an interesting historical site.

One reviewer really captured my own sentiment when noting that a church or cathedral really has to be extraordinary to stand out among the thousands that one sees when traveling around Latin America. The Córdoba Cathedral is very attractive inside and out, and is worth visiting at anytime of day or night, but I wouldn't necessarily list it among the... More

Cordoba cathedral is one of the most beautiful that I have visited, built more than 400 years ago and remodeled in the beginning of the century. You can enjoy the history and cross the street to several squares, business and restaurants

After 6 months traveling through S. America, old cathedrals all start looking the same unless they are truly extraordinary. This one doesn't qualify. But it is free to enter, beautiful at night, and worth a visit if you love cathedrals or haven't seen hundreds of them already.

The constuction started in 1580 and it was inaugurated in 1709. It is located in the city center and it is one of my favourite buildings in the city only two years ago there was a big campaing to re-paint it entirely. The result: magnificent! when you look at it you really see a piece of art!

I’ve seen many of these cathedrals around the world, and they never cease to impress. I guess that’s what they are designed to do, and this one is no exception. The interior houses many beautiful wall and ceiling frescos, and statues, and lots of gold plate (see my photos). It’s worth dropping in to have a look when you stumble... More

The Cordoba Cathedral -'Nuestra Señora de la Asunción'- is the oldest church in Argentina and a beautiful and active one. Located in Plaza San Martín Square, shows impressive at night, and rich and complex interiors when you visit at open hours. Many locals visit this church, and prays to many images, christs, saints and so on. Altar and others bright... More
