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.

I didn't know much about the Jesuits before we visited Cordoba so found our visit really interesting. 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...

This is a fantastic church, and we were lucky enough to be there for choir practice. However we chose to take the university tour. Unfortunately our guide spent the majority of the time talking about herself and her opinions. She was rude at times and self righteous. I'd reccommend visiting without the tour!

For part of the story that ended in the movie The Mission. 1986 British film directed by Roland Joffé and starring Robert De Niro, Jeremy Irons, Ray McAnally and Aidan Quinn in the main, winning roles of several international film awards. You also know the first Argentina Church made by the Jesuits. Its roof (as it did a Jesuit shipbuilder)... More
