La Cumbre, Córdoba
LA CUMBRE is a small town in the province of Córdoba , Argentina, in a valley known as the "Valle de Punilla". It has a population of 7800 inhabitants. HISTORYInitially La Cumbre was part of a community of farms and began to flourish as a town by the time the railway was built in the 1890s. As it was the highest point of the railway, it was given the name "La Cumbre" (The Summit) and the British railway locomotive engineers that participated were the first of an important presence of Anglo-Argentines that would become part of the town's culture even to this day. Unfortunately the railway now no longer runs and the old railway station has become the community centre, housing a small museum and tourist information office. The climate is moderate and particularly suited to people with bronchial and asthmatic problems. During the 1920s British families built their holiday homes here, which contributed to the particularly English architectural style of La Cumbre
