Cordoba is the second greatest city of Latina with 5 674 865 inhabitants. The town is the capital of the province of "Sierra Ponente" and the greatest city in western Latina. Since April 2016 the city of Cordoba is an own province of Latina, but still too the capital of Sierra Ponente, because the town lays like an island in the area of this province.
The flag of the town shows the connection to the sea - blue with a white wave.
In Cordoba is the oldest university of Latina (founded 1513), a great operahouse and lots of theaters. As cultural center the city is the second town in Latina after Latina (Cidudad) itself. Well known is Cordoba for many objects of art in the public streetroom. On the other hand the life in cordoba can be lazy at the beaches at the western shore.
Important too is Cordoba for his harbour and the industry in and around the city.
First urbanisized part of the town is the left part of the center (Barrio 2 - Cathedral), founded 1509 in a relative wide area - at the beginning with many open space as a quadrate of 2.5 * 2.5 km (6.25 km²) and sourrounded by broad channels as harbourfront.
Second part of the town is the Barrio # 1 (Alameda Veja). The center at the right side of the river (now Barrio 3 and 4) is founded 1665, as the first both Barrios was full with houses. Til 1700 this area was full urbanisized and after 1730 the first houses are build outside this area.
In the 1840-ies, with the upcoming of railways, were urbanisized the barrios 5 to 8 at the station and north of the old town. The barrios 1 to 8 is til today seen as "inner town" and are connected in the district ("Delegation") Centro
The now barrio # 41 (Cigüeñas - means storks) was at that time a wide area of wetland on the south side of the river, where this storks are living. But here the new harbour of Cordoba was founded around 1850 and step by step this area was full of buildings. Since the 1880-ies the urbanisation reaches the old villages of Alvor, Baja Juniper, Virgen del Mayo and Jacinto. In this time parallel with the town grow a net of horsetrams, since 1895 of electric streetcars.
Cordoba was til 2016-03-31 an own cantone in the province of Sierra Ponente and the capital of the province. For the gouvernement of the town (and formerly cantone of the province Sierra Ponente) is used the town-hall ("Ayuntamento") in the barrio # 2. Now in the Ayuntamento too is the cortes of the province of Cordoba.
For the gouvernement of the province Sierra Ponente is used still the "Cortes de Province" in the barrio # 31.
Since 2016-04-01 the formerly 22 suburbs are new organisized and most made smaller for better citizen-service. Cordoba now is divided in 48 suburbs, named "barrios", numbered from # 1 to # 58 with gaps in the sequence of numbers. Postal Code is always 210. or 21.. and the number of the suburb (always 4 numerals 2101 to 2158). Government and some greater organisations have postalcodes from 2160 to maximal 2199 and the numbers ending at 21x0.
Like in Latina (Ciudad) always for some barrios are connected to a "Delegation" (district). For each district are local courts in service.

After Saguset Cordoba is the second greatest harbour at the southcoast of Latina. The international ferry to Orleans in Beaudrey starts at Tres Hermanos (SP) south of Cordoba via Motorway # 12.
Cordoba is junctioned at the motorway # 1 (Latina - western bondary) and startpoint of the motorways# 11 (western coastline), # 12 (coastline of Sierra Ponente and to Latina (Cidudad)), # 14 (northwest boundary), # 15 (Du Bois), # 16 (Mendoza and Topahappan) and # 27 (Tunnel to Beaudry). The main-roads ## 40 and 67 run through Cordoba and roads ## 70 and 71 starts here.
Cordoba has in the southeast of the town an intercontinental airport, the third in Latina after Latina (Ciudad) and Porto Colon with the code "COR". They here speak from an "airport with heart". The airport is junctioned with the city through the "Cercania"-Line 140 (commuter-railway) with hi-speed.
1848 the railway from Cordoba to Latina (Ciudad) was opened. The first small station was build at the Plaza del Paz in the southwest of the present station. 1912 the new and greater Central Station was opened - together with the first metro-line in a tunnel in Cordoba. This station is a terminal-station. Only some suburb-lines ("Cercania") and the hi-speed-lines ## 1 and 2 run through the station.
The AVE hi-speed lines ## 1 and 2 from Latina (Cidudad) to the international tunnel to Beaudry and to the western frontier run over Cordoba Central Station and the AVE-line # 11 to Mendoza and Topahappan and # 15 to Du Bois starts there. To avoid a great bow around the town, the AVE-lines ## 1 and 2 run in a tunnel under the western city to the west.
The other railways starting from Cordoba have line-numers in the 600-ies.
As other great cities in Latina Cordoba has a net of "Cercania"-lines for the local traffic. The lines have the RENFEL-Numbers 140 to 149. In most part of the net they run on own tracks apart from the other railways. The line 130 is a fast connection to the intercontinental airport of Cordoba.
Since 1997 the lines 130 and 131 run south of the main station through a tunnel under the Avenida La Paz and stops at the Central Station in a deep level platform. The older tracks of this both lines (on the map in grey) some years are not in use. Now run over the old cercania tracks two branches of the metro-line # 10 with a lot of new station.
The lines 132 to 139 starts and terminated at the Central Station (Estacion Central) at the tracks ## 1 to 6 at ground level.
In the limits of the city you can use the cercanias with the normal metro-cards of Cordoba. Out of the town-limits of Cordoba is to pay a special fare to the regulations of the RENFEL, the latinian railway-company.
At the stations Academia, Juniper Alta, Irigoyen and Orquideas it is possible, to change to the metro at the same platform.

"Music is in the air" - is to say about Cordoba. From Jazz, Pop and more modern styles to a high level of classical you can hear, what you like - live and unplugged in many little clubs or in great houses with professional background. So many of now famous artist get the first applause in one of the small clubs of the old town or in Juniper Bajo in Cordoba.
Cordoba has - as generell in Latina - no closing time and so you can be active the whole night. Global Cordoba is seen as "young" city. Extraordinary fashion takes from here the way in the mainstream. Several Newspapers an magazines are published in Cordoba, read in the whole country. So without doubt Cordoba is the second town in the land, but with a more lazy athmosphere as Latina (Cidudad).
