Córdoba is located on the base of the Andes known as the Sierra Chica, at the northern tip of a triangle between Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires. Once the Cultural Capital of the Americas, Córdoba is a hive of activity with concerts, art exhibitions and theatrical performances covering every second of every day. The city's many churches span the spectrum of European architecture – from simple brick structures rinsed in pink paint to a cavernous temple whose wooden roof resembles an inverted ship's hull. In 1573, Cordoba Argentina was the second largest city, and used to be the center of arts where scholarly people such as priests and teachers would convene at churches and universities.
Students on the Middlebury program direct enroll alongside roughly 110,000 students at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba. Available subject areas span the spectrum from the humanities to the social sciences to the natural sciences, and they host Schools specifically dedicated to Psychology, Architecture, Science, Health, and foreign languages.
Argentina, the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world, known locally as "The Land of the Six Continents" for its geographic and climatic diversity, has a long and fascinating history and is a major economic and political power in South America.
