Tours in English at 10am and 5pm (winter). Only AR$10 for an hour long tour through the previous Jesuit church and part of the university. Explained the history of Cordoba, the Jesuit influence on the university. Able to view books from 100's of years ago, in the library, and maps through the ages. Interesting tour. Great value for money.

Walking around Córdoba Downtown is walking around history. This couple of blocks are what is left from the jesuit culture in this city. Through narrow stone streets and old constructions, in this walk, you can also take a look at the Cathedral, the Domestic Chapel that also belong to the Jesuits and the first University in the country.

We arrived fairly late, 5 pm I think, and a guided tour in English was about to start. We normally avoid tours, but this was a good way to get a bit more out of the museum and learn more about the whole Jesuit history in Córdoba. Our guide took us to the church, various parts of the museum (I... More

Definitely a large piece of Argentian or better yet South American, history literally written in the library that is being held in this museum. I would suggest to plan your visit during one of the free guided tours (English and Spanish): which I highly recommend in order to take away an enriched experience. The visits in the morning include the... More

The tour is A$10 which is about 60p.The guide spoke very fast and it was difficult to absorb or even hear what was being said. However, more importantly you get time to... More

I went for a guided tour that only cost 10 pesos. It was well worth it. You get to see a lot of historical artifacts and learn a lot about the Jesuits' time in Argentina. My only reservation was the tour guide who spoke very fast with an accent. So we couldn't understand a lot of what he said. Overall,... More
