Day Trips in CordobaEdit This
Villa Los Aromos, 70 km south of Cordoba city is a very nice small town, nice to relax. The village itself has nothing special to offer, it is really a holiday place. In the summertime many Argentinians rent houses over there and the offer for rental is good. Main attraction is the river Anisacate, which is a beautiful place to swim. Beware of the sudden rising of the river, sometimes it can be dangerous after periods of rainfall.
Villa Los Aromos (and all the villages around, like La Bolsa or Alta Gracia) can be reached from Cordoba Capital with the bus service of Sierras de Calamuchita, leaving from the bus terminal in the capital.

Another beautiful day-trip from Cordoba capital is Capilla del Monte, about 100 km North of the city. This town attracts many spiritual people because of its nearby Cerro Uritorco, a mountain which possesses special powers. From the top of the mountain, which is easy to climb, you have a beautiful view of the surroundings and you might meet some UFO's (it is said that people have seen UFO's there).
Capilla del Monte can be reached from the bus terminal in Cordoba by taking buslines from El Serra or La Calera.
