and immersed in history. Really sorry we didn't take the tour.(sigh). Next time. Close to many other places to visit. We DID go to the Estancia in Alta Gracia and enjoyed that immensely. Worth YOUR time.

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.
