  • This breakwater, located in the Centre of the city, was built in in 1653 by the Jesuits and was the first dam in the province of Cordoba. It is a great piece of engineering, especially taking into account the time that was built and its central location, opposite the historic complex, makes it very used as an area of recreation for the inhabitants of the place. The ride is quite nice, wooded, shady, but when we visited it we noticed a lack of cleaning.

  • In the Centre of the city of Alta Gracia are the most important buildings of the Jesuit Estancia, declared by Unesco: historical heritage. One of those buildings is called cutwater, a 1 water reservoir has of surface, with a wall of stone and lime, fueled by a ditch, which provided water to the inhabitants and was used for the irrigation of the farms and the traction of a waterwheel which operated a grain mill. The place is very scenic and is located to the side of the Museum of the Virrey Liniers, the parish church and the public clock tower.

  • It is an area that even though this of all maintained good isn't very nice to spend some time and take a few mates, or listen to some band. You be wanting maintenance in some few places but that does not remove cute it and quiet place. It is worth to take advantage of it.

Where to stay in Alta Gracia

Alta Gracia's lodging options remain relatively limited, a small problem since most visitors come on day trips from nearby Cordoba.

For more choices, explore the surrounding towns, like La Cumbrecita or Los Olivares.
