Jesuit Block and Estancias of Cordoba Tour
We'll collect you from your hotel in Cordoba to start our tour of the emblematic Society of Jesus buildings. Did you know that the Jesuit Block and Estancias of Cordoba have been named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On this tour, you'll discover their great cultural value and their relation with the history of Argentina.
After a 50-minute journey, we'll make our first stop and visit the Interpretation Centre, located in the city of Colonia Caroya. We'll head into the building and discover photographs, artistic displays and historic documents that will help us to understand the influence that the Society of Jesus had on Cordoba. Get ready to step back in time to the 17th and 18th centuries!
Next, we'll hit the road again and 15 minutes later we'll arrive at the Estancia Caroya Museum (entrance not included). Here, we'll visit the rooms of this mansion which housed the monks in the 17th century. Interestingly, this was the first estancia of the Jesuits in the area.
10 minutes further along the road, we'll reach our next destination: the Jesús María Estancia, which is now a National Museum. This stone building will allow us to find out all about the history of the religious people that lived here, plus we'll discover the mills and land that the Jesuits used to make wine.
We'll travel for another 30 minutes before reaching the Santa Catalina Estancia, founded in 1622. With its white façade framed by two towers, and located in beautiful natural surroundings, this building is sure to make an impression! Here, we'll continue discovering about the Society of Jesus' way of life, plus we'll admire a Baroque-style historical church.
In the afternoon we'll return to Cordoba and drop you back at your hotel.
On the day of the tour, you'll have the chance to visit the La Caroyense Winery. The tour will be the same, the only difference will be that you'll make a stop at the winery before visiting the old city of Colonia Caroya. If you're not interested in visiting the winery, you'll have more time to explore the Estancia Caroya Museum.
