CORDOBA

SANTA ROSA DE CALAMUCHITA

This locality, almost entirely devoted to tourist activities, is situated at the centre of the Calamuchita Valley, between the Sierras Chicas and the Sierras Grandes Mountain Ranges, at both margins of the Calamuchita River and at a distance of 96 kilometres from the City of Cordoba.

This is the ideal place to spend your vacations in contact with nature and wilderness. Santa Rosa de Calamuchita, as is its full name, arises idyllic sensations among its visitors, beckoning them to know its natural attractions and recreational facilities. There are some impressive landscapes composed by rivers, mountains and lakes towards any chosen direction, which handle a unique frame for the traveller.

Santa Rosa has a rich history, which can be tracked back to the year of 1575. This history tells us about the presence of the Comechigones, of the first Spanish settlers with their ranches and of the Jesuits, which erected the Ranch of San Ignacio. As a matter of fact, Santa Rosa was apart of a famous ranch during colonial times.

The locality has an important lodging infrastructure and several campsites, including every single commodity and attraction oriented to please the visitor, which make it one of the main tourist centres in the Province of Cordoba. Santa Rosa also offers many beach resorts and including a well-fit arrangement of campsites, cabins, bungalows, hotels and houses for rent.

During the daytime, besides having a lot of fun at the river, the visitor will be able to go out on guided excursions which can be performed either by walking, riding a horse, or on a bicycle, a motorcycle or on four wheeled vehicles. Diving and fishing are other interesting options this place has in store for you.

The nights at Santa Rosa are very intense, due to the presence of candy shops, pubs, discotheques and cinemas.

EXCURSIONS

At the Centre
The Suspended Bridge can be found at the intersection of Guemes and the Costanera Avenue, a pathway dangling over the Santa Rosa River in order to allow pedestrian circulation through it, connecting the centre of the Town with the Villa Satarelli. As we walk across it, a panoramic sight of the river will materialise. From this point on, going by the Mendoza Street, the tourist will come upon the former local of the Club Sportivo Social, continuing then by the Main Street to close this small tour at the presence of the monument to the Mother.

El Balcon
Starting at the Attention of the Tourist Centre located at number13 Guemes Street and passing by the monument to the Mother, we will reach Provincial Route 5. From this point on the road continues its way up the mountain until reaching its summit. A balcony located at this high place will provide an impressive view of the valley, enabling the traveller's sight to catch glimpses of other neighbouring localities.

Museum of Religious Art and the "Capilla Vieja" Community Centre.
This place is located at the Libertad Street, between Centenario and Juana de Fernandez Streets. The building was originally erected with 44 by 20 centimetre bricks in the year of 1784. Its structure presented a central body, two belfries, two confessionaries and two sacristies at each side of its central nave each one with their respective pulpits.

The Chapel went through several modifications along the times, until in 1877 Estanislao Baños accomplished what is its present day gothic appearance.

It contains a number of ancient images, among which we can mention those of Nuestra Señora de Dolores, Nuestra Señora del Carmen and Santa Rosa de Lima. Some of them bear the peculiarity of being of a kind called 'chandelier', which means it is composed by a head, articulated arms and a framework body, which is dressed up accordingly to each festivity. There is also a 1.35 metre high carved-wood image of Christ done by the Jesuits circa the late 17th century; there are other wood carvings, as the one portraying a 'Niño Dios' and another from Santa Barbara 85 centimetres high, both of which belong to the past century.

On August 29th of 1997, the chapel was refurbished and inaugurated with the name of Museum of Religious Art "Santa Rosa de Lima". The lot within which it stands is known as the "Communitarian Centre", which was handed over to the community for recreational, social and cultural purposes.

Cerro del Vía Crucis - Mountain
Crossing over the Provincial Route 5 from the Gomez Neighbourhood, the traveller will meet the climbing path that ends at the feet of the Cruz Mayor. Along this path the different stations of the Via Crucis are displayed and, once at the summit, he will attain the spectacular sight of the locality, of the Santa Rosa River and of the Lake of the Rio Tercero Reservoir.

La Cascada
From the Centre of Tourist Attention, at 13 Guemes Street, the route will connect with Route 5, from where begins the ascent through the mountains of the Sierras Chicas Range. At the end of this road that winds along the Loyola Stream, the visitor will arrive to a beautiful 7 metre high waterfall.

CAVERNS
During any of the several excursions to be taken, the traveller will come across some of the different caverns which, spreading over a 7-kilometre range, constitute nearby attractions of Santa Rosa de Calamuchita.

Gruta Virgen Nuestra Señora del Rosario
Starting our route from the Monument to the Mother (at the crossroads between the Doctor Dell Acqua and the Jose Maria Gomez Avenues) and going by Route 5, we will arrive to the base of the Via Crucis Mountain, where this cave is located.

Gruta Virgen Nuestra Señora del Valle
To reach this place, we have to begin our excursion from the Monument to the Mother, going by the Costanera Avenue across the Iron Bridge until arriving to Santa Rosa del Rio. From this place the Costanera Rio Suquia Avenue has to be taken up to its end, whereupon we will find this cave.

Gruta de Santa Mónica
This cavern can be reached after going across the Iron Bridge and following the Siete Colores Road for about two kilometres.

Gruta Virgen de Lourdes
This new cave can be accessed following the route that goes over the Hanging Bridge in the direction of Villa Santarelli, at the Güemesse Street.
