Fodor's Review

The former home of the Marquis de Sobremonte, a Córdoban governor of the late 18th century, is a block east of Plaza San Martín. This is Córdoba's oldest private residence, and one of the country's best examples of colonial architecture. Five courtyards, a chapel, and 26 rooms are distributed over two floors; the rooms are furnished with period pieces, costumes, old photographs, and oil paintings of the Cusqueña School, a 17th- to 18th-century movement of artists based

in Cuzco, Peru. Their baroque-style paintings are usually heavily gilded, and depict religious figures, often with indigenous features. A tour of the home's labyrinthine corridors can lead your imagination back in time.
