Cordoba

Cordoba city (pop., 1999 est.: 1,275,585), the second largest in Argentina. It lies on the Primero River along the foothills of the Sierra de Cordoba. Founded in 1573, its location between the coast and the interior settlements favoured its early development. In 1599 Jesuits settled in the city and founded the country's first university (1613). Cordoba's growth was stimulated by the completion of tail connections with the east in 1869 and the San Roque Dam in 1866, which provides irrigation water for orchards and grain fields and hydroelectric power for the city's many factories,
