This is another bookmark that I bought in Córdoba:
Villa Giardino is a town between La Cumbre and La Falda. It was originally populated by Comechingones (indigenous people). The Spanish settlers established two important ranches called El Molino and Altos de San Pedro. With the arrival of the railroad in the 19th century, the region thrived as a rural area, and also through the exploitation of limestone deposits. The town takes its name after landowner Juan Giardino, owner of Altos de San Pedro and a main driving force in the urbanization of this small agrarian village.
