  • Have time to visit and guide. Built nomtempo of the Jesuits. During our visit we saw tunnels linking various parts of the city.

  • Some of the tunnels built in the colonial era, used for defence and the smuggling run below the Manzana de las Luces. As if it were a travel in time, who explore the Manzana de las Luces may have a better idea of how was Buenos Aires before independence: the Church of San Ignacio, the Procurator of the missions, the representatives and the tunnels of the 17TH century.

  • The assessment is not better just because the day I went to the tunnels were closed for maintenance, unfortunately.
