Punilla Valley


The Punilla Valley is a broad fluvial valley in the province of Cordoba, Argentina. It is located in the center-northwest of the province, bordered by the Sierras Chicas in the east and the Sierras Grandes and the Achala Pampas in the west, oriented from north to south. In the southern part of the valley lies the San Roque Lake, fed mainly by the San Antonio River and the Cosquin River.

The most important tourist location in Cordoba, the city of Villa Carlos Paz, is located on the southern shore of the lake, though the valley is known for a number of other scenic towns, including Cruz del Eje, Capilla del Monte, La Cumbre, La Falda, Valle Hermoso, and Cosquin.

The Cruz del Eje and La Falda Reservoirs were completed within the valley in 1943 and 1979, respectively, to address the area's water and flood control needs, and have since become important recreational areas in their own right.
