Route No. 5 joins every little paradise of Paravachasca. The important entranceway, Alta Gracia, pleases us with the dam in the heart of the city, and also with the construction of the Jesuitas and Enersto Che Guevara’s childhood home.
We now continue our trajectory with wonderful towns full of crystal clear water rivers; some with warm beaches and others surrounded by thick green areas. Each town is a masterpiece. Their cabins and intimate magic little churches coexist with the beautiful nature of this province.
In the great Dique Los Molinos there are fishing clubs and comfortable cabins to enjoy the view of boats waiting to navigate on these water mirrors.

If we had to define the Valle de Traslasierras in one word, it would be “stunning.” It is a landscape that moves anybody with its two dams, an impressive mountain range, woods and rivers.
In the mountain, the charm of the land and the spell of the silent territory under the deep blue sky dominated by the condors. At the foot of the mountains, unforgettable images, such as the flavor of the sand smelts, barbecued kid, steaming homemade bread and jam.
A land of mysteries and adventures to be lived from the moment we hit the road to get to Valle de Traslasierras. Its winding routes lead to the top of the hills, and next the clouds lie at our feet. Down there, a series of magical towns are waiting for us on the sides of the Cerro Champaquí,the tallest hill in the province located at 2,800 m above sea level.
Numerous rivers, clear water streams and sandy beds coming down from the mountain cross the region and there people can go windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing, rowing and fishing. During summer, Mina Clavero and Panaholma rivers are the most visited ones by tourists because they have beautiful beaches, balnearios and paradores (area on the riverside offering recreational and retail services).

The South of Córdoba has a different kind of tourism where the adventure, the visit to estancias (ranches) and rural tourism are possible by means of photographic safaris and birdwatching. Cultivated fields gleam in golden wheat fields and green alfalfa. The abundant woods, the sand dunes, the lakes and ponds offer us a unique landscape and a wonderful tourist attraction.
This was the territory of the Pampas and Ranqueles aborigines, who firmly fought to defend their lands during the Conquista del Desierto (the desert conquest). At last, the land was distributed among winners and immigrants who were mostly Italians and Spaniards. .
Together with the criollo, the product of the miscegenation, Italians and Spaniards worked the lands to develop the cattle and agriculture industry.
The adventure and rural tourisms carried out in prestigious rural estancias, the hunting, the sport fishing, and the photographic safaris make up a harmonious equilibrium with the natural environment of each and every town.
