Cordoba is a province with a special beauty. Full of towns, cities and distinct interconnected landscapes. With its characters, its landscape and its tradition. It is divided by regions that are geographically or historically make it one of the most interesting provinces of the country. In this opportunity the map us took more beyond the mountains, crossing the Champaqui, crossing the high peaks, surpassing the limit with the puntanos of the city of Merlo. The first village we found is called La Paz, capital of the mountain herbs. Already begins to perceive the tranquility of these villages.

We make a tour around the area of Loma Bola, with its imposing hotel, beautiful handicrafts in wood and cargarmos some provisions in the unique service station by a few kilometers. What follows is a very picturesque path where cross farm animals, which connects with the places of crossing, Luyaba and La population (where stopped for lunch in a rack mounted in the garden of a house). This zigzagging route leads to the towns of San and Yacanto Javier, where it grows in large numbers the number of services for visitors (restaurants, lodgings, handicrafts) with its typical square with the Church. From here hiking and horseback riding are performed for the Champaqui and we appreciate dream landscapes. Following path we have Las Tapias, as almost reaching Villa Dolores, here we can enjoy Spa Boca del Rio, a lake where you can practice fishing and some water sports.

In this place the way it forks and we we’re going to the road that leads to mine Clavero.Esta area is well known for olive groves, already in Villa Las Rosas found some of the producers of olive oil and its derivatives. It is very interesting to visit some of these factories and take a souvenir for those who could not travel. Now the path is different, it becomes much more busy, is best signposted and find lots of stalls selling cordoban alfajores, collations, salami and goat cheese. Impossible for those who are doing diet. We arrived at the village more high in this area, Los Hornillos, another quiet spot with possibility of mountaineering, fishing or tourism adventure. Stuck we find Las Rabonas, with its Lake of spectacular view towards the mountains, where stands Cola del Dique, a nice place to spend the day. And we arrived at our final destination in this journey in Traslasierra, the city of the Nono, an already much bigger place to the rest of the spots in the area. Crossing two rivers, the Rio de los Sauces, warm waters and extensive beaches and the Chico River of Nono, that allow us to enjoy whole afternoons by the side of river with mate in family. The village has its plaza with a very interesting craft fair and many places to sleep and eat. Among the excursions excels the visit to the multifaceted Rocsen Museum, a unique museum where the most varied collections. St. Hubert, La Quebrada, Los Algarrobos and El Huaico are other picturesque spots located in the vicinity of Nono.
