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

After the arrival of jesuits in Argentina, Córdoba was the center of their activities. You can see many buildings in the city and also in cities near by like Alta Gracia. 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

It was very hard to find useful information about guided tours through the manzana complex beforehand. So I thought it might be helpful to share the hours of the guided tours here in case people are searching for it. Turns out that during the whole year there is a morning tour in English at 10 am and one in Spanish... More

We were in Cordoba over new year so the whole place was very quiet. On 1st Jan we ventured into town to see if any restaurants were open for dinner (there were a few) and the church in this square was in the middle of an evening service and we were able to watch from the doorway. People were taking... More
