“Fresh air to the city...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

This is a recent remodelled area in Córdoba. It was a former women's prison and because of the growth it was moved so the place was completly empty. Today, the old church is an art galery exhibition and there are many restaurants and shops. Another nice thing is that when the walls were demolished it cleared the view towards the "capuchinos" church next to it.
The reshuffle gave a new fresh air to the city and people (especially youngs) uses the grass to seat and chat, drink mate and have a great time most of all during the hot summer days.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

It was a great relax after walking the city during the day. We went two nights and enjoyed the beautiful water dancing while having dinner. Really, we didn´t want to return to the hotel...

“The Centre of the City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

In the middle of the city, this square of bars and restaurants is the epicenter of the nightlife of Cordoba. The building was refurbish from an Old Prison destined for women's and a church to what is now, a cultural centre and trend place from the north of Argentina.

It provides a lot of gastronomical options and a lot of events are arrange around this place from culinary markets to wine tastings. I love the ambience in the fountain, the water shows and the music played as well. The lightning around the building with the church in the back it was also well organized and everything was well maintain.

A must for a visit to Cordoba.

“Nice place to chill at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

The attraction used to be a women´s prison and now is a popular meeting spot for many locals. There are water fountains that are choreographed to music that are played every hour on the hour from 1900 - 2200 (when I was there). There is a nice breeze and sometimes some other performances there. I saw an Armenian performance when passing by a few days ago.

There are many bars and restaurants in the area and it´s also a great place to chill after exploring the museums in the area.

You can also sometimes see girls having photoshoots at the fountains to celebrate their 15th birthdays.
Really nice place to hang out with lots of seats around!

“Agitated Night Life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

All the bars in Cordoba are near so the square is always full of people sitting now and drinking. There are some good but expensive restaurants on the square but one café that is extremely well located with stand up comedy, in front of the water show with opera music that is cheap and nice atmosphere outside.
