I did a tour of the 3 Jesuit estancias North of Cordoba, and it was very interesting to see not only the old churches, but also to get the history of the Jesuits in Argentina. They were the first order to introduce education along with trying to convert the natives. Next stop was the Jesus Maria National Jesuit Museum and... More

We arrived by taxi from Jesus Maria and were eagerly greeted by the caretaker/greeter. He gave us a great tour of the church, but we weren't able to view the rest of the estancia because it wasn't open or accessible.

Santa Catalina is the only Jesuit estancia in private hands (been in the same family for 250 years!). It is actually incredible, you travel what seems for ever on a dirt road, turn a corner and you are in front of the biggest colonial church ever. You either go with a tour or a rental car, there is no other... More

I went to visit Estancia Santa Catalina, thanks to Nativo Viajes for getting me there and fortunately, we had Lucas as our professional driver and Eduardo as our guide and together, they made our excursion fantastic! We got to walk around the estancia and see the church and the old walls that surround it. I took a lot of really... More

The only way to get there (I think) is by taxi/remise. There's no buses that I could find. It's 12km down a dirt road, and there's very little else to do once you're there. There's some artisan shops and a posada. The posada is kinda cool because they converted the old slaves' quarters into sleeping quarters. If you go, don't... More

We stayed at the Estancia for one Night. What a fantastic place. Beautiful, quiet and a great history. The room was great, so was the host, even though we could not speak spanish, we felt very welcome. By far the best place we have stayed in Argentina.
