Offering a rare window into the humble beginnings of early humans, the Cerro Colorado Reserve is one of Cordoba's most important archaeological sites, home to fascinating geological sandstone formations and some of the earliest known aboriginal cave paintings in the country. Here you can see preserved artistic images created by the native tribes that lived around Cordoba Province over 1,500 years ago, well before the introduction of European culture and influence. Take an educational guided hike into this natural historic monument and experience a piece of truly authentic Argentine history.
If you're looking to keep things a bit more active, consider pairing your visit with a hike up Cerro Colorado's neighboring Cerro Veladero (810 m) or Cerro Inti Huasi (772 m), then finishing off the day with a dip in the relaxing river that runs nearby the town.
