NONO

Located at a distance of 130 kilometres from the City of Cordoba and 860 kilometres from the Federal Capital, Sierras Grandes is a place where you would be able to enjoy its clear skies and its fresh rivers and streams. This is a place where the sun shines through all year long, and the clear waters of its river invite you to enjoy them at every moment.

The name Nono comes from the Quechua word 'Ñuño' which means "indian maiden's breasts", rightfully named after the two mountains that rise at the West side of the Town, across the Los Sauces River.

It is the most ancient indigene Town in the Traslasierra Valley and it is situated at only 8 kilometres from Mina Clavero. The Los Sauces River, flowing nearby, washes the sand beaches giving birth to some excellent beach resorts before arriving to the rear end of the Medina Allende Dam. The area is well supplied with an assortment of hotels, hostelries, cabins and camping sites to bring the traveller the best service and attention.
