CORDOBA

VILLA CURA BROCHERO

The peculiar assets of its landscape are added to the relevant historical and cultures traces of Cura Brochero, where several characteristics of its primitive settlers, the comechingones indigenes, still survive. Of their rich handcraft patrimony, its inhabitants have kept the forms and stiles of its black pottery, a cultural ingredient that has been passed on from fathers to sons.

Villa Cura Brochero is a locality at the highlands, framed by the impressive landscape of the Sierras Grandes where tradition is always present. It lays at the margins of the Ponaholma River, with warm waters and beautiful beaches. The peculiar characteristics of its weather help to invigorate and heal both the soul and the body of its visitors.

This Village is located at the Valley of Traslasierra, 150 kilometres to the West of the City of Córdoba. It is connected to the Town of Mina Clavero by two bridges over the Ponaholma River and by another one over the Los Sauces River. Its major assets are the extreme opposite to that of the big cities: peacefulness and the beneficial effects of simple things. Nevertheless, some years ago some lodging infrastructure was furnished in these area.

This is one of the most coveted regions by those tourists searching for peaceful relax. The sulkies and horses walk through the Village with their tardy strand while the lady neighbours take a refreshing brake at the Centenario Square in the afternoon.

The options for lodging in fit every liking as well as every budget. The commonest of all these possibilities is that of the family rent houses, for their attention is mainly performed by their owners. To the traditional services offered by hotels and hostelries, are added the cabin and apartment compounds, a great availability of lodgings and houses for temporary rental periods.

Villa Cura Brochero also has a great number of campsites, strewn at the shores of its large coastlines over the Ponahoma and Los Sauces Rivers.

Besides its rivers, streams and beaches, Villa Cura Brochero and its surroundings puts forward a multiplicity of activities in open spaces, from which stand out mountain biking, horseback riding and fishing.

Gastronomy
This is a special asset of Cura Brochero: its respect for traditionally made food. Its restaurants, simple and full of small-village taste, cherish as a prized treasure their ageless family recipes for the preparation of those exquisite home made food and tasty regional dishes.

Traditional sweets deserve a chapter apart: the pastries and the alfajor are two of the most traditional desserts of the Valley of Traslasierra, sweetening the days for the visitor since the early times of the past century along with the siesta by the river and the rounds of mate infusions.

By night time, and specially on summer time, people gathers around the Centenario Square, where artisans arriving from different places exhibit their works, and where local or occasional invited singers turn the gathering into an improvised dance.

As an additional asset to the entertainment offer proper, the visitor has the chance of going to the casino, the theatre halls, the cinemas and the discotheques at the neighbouring locality of Mina Clavero.

The 'Casa de Ejercicios Espirituales' (House of Spiritual Exercises), declared as a National Historical Monument, is the present seat to the Museo Brocheriano Museum and the Santuario de Nuestra Señora del Tránsito, the resting place for the mortal remains of the Cura Brochero priest.

In the near vicinity stands the house where he passed away in the year of 1914, nowadays a constituting part of the historical tour to be taken around the Village, as well as the 'Chiflón Grande' aqueduct, constructed in 1882 and the Agua de Chavez water intake or little irrigation reservoir.

Calendar
A special attention deserve the Christmas Holydays at Cura Brochero in December; the Week of Cura Brochero between the 19th and the 26th of January; the 'Fiesta del Pastelitero' in the month of February and the 'Cabalgata de Fe' (Horse Ride of Faith) to cross the Sierras Grandes on horseback during March.

Tours
- Nuestra Señora del Tránsito Church - it is also situated at the border of the Centenario Square, the primeval church was built in 1864. The construction works of the present Temple, where the remains of the Cura Brochero were finally buried, were started in the year of 1898.

- Casa de la Cultura - Culture House: this late 19th century old casona (mansion) stands in the Belgrano Street, hosting different regional culture manifestations.

- Agua de Chavez farm: this compound is located at two kilometres distance at the South-west of the Cura Brochero Village. It actually is a farm where the visitor can spend the day in the fields, with swimming pools, barbecues, strolling areas and a small reservoir built by Brochero in 1870.

- Los Chifones: This aqueduct was built by Brochero in 1882 to carry the waters of the Panaholma River down to the Villa del Tránsito Village. It can be found in the road to the Las Maravillas beach resort.

- Las Maravillas, La Quebrada, Toro Muerto: these private beach resorts are located in the area of the San Lorenzo Community. Parking here usually demands an extra charge. Phone number: 156-11909.

- Iguana Valley: This hatchery of iguanas is located in San Lorenzo, on the road to Toro Muerto, some 500 metres to the East.
