A Visit to the Cathedral Can Bridge Two Worlds

Argentina prides itself in its European tendencies in everything from pizza to architecture. Córdoba's cathedral, however, is another story. While at first glance, it looks like any beautiful cathedral in Florence or Madrid, its details render it distinctly South American. Built over the course of several centuries, the cathedral is a mix of a variety of architectural styles, boasting a Spanish Baroque façade, a Romanesque dome, and a Neoclassical portico. The frescoed walls are courtesy of cordobés artist Emilio Caraffa (1863-1939), and the adjacent crypts are the final resting place of several prominent Argentines, including General José Maria Paz.
