Taking the tour is worth it. You get to see rooms not open to the public-the historic room where doctors defended their thesis, and ancient books. We took the tour in Spanish with a group of people from all over the world who were all spanish speakers. Very interesting.

Be sure and take the guided tour in English, as it gives you access to parts of the complex you could not otherwise enter. Lots of history within these walls, and beautiful architecture

Very interesting, with competent guides. It's too bad we could not stay any longer in the library. To be completed with the visit of a jesuit estancia (Alta Gracia).

Must do in Cordoba. You are in the heart of the city with plenty of shops, restaurants, and cafes. Very central to other attractions.

We did the English university tour (at 5pm every day but Sunday I think and costs 10 pesos) which was great value for money and goes for about an hour. You can visit the church without a guide but for the rest of... More

In Córdoba, the Jesuit Sqare includes the Capilla Doméstica, Colegio Nacional de Monserrat, Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús, former headquarters of the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba and the...
