  • This resort is 1 hour of Cordoba. Is the oldest resort in the region, dating back to 1616, where the Jesuits arrived to manufacture arms. I paid 15 input weights. Is very well cared for and preserved. It is 4 km from another Office, from Jesus Maria. Recommend the double!

  • Cool
  • When one goes to visit Cordoba and its Jesuit heritage, this is another of the obligatory stops. Very close to the Jesuit Estancia of Jesús María, Caroya stay also has its own particularities. It is a great ride family. Unlike other historic sites, you can visit it at all times, although it is always best to check on the official website of the Cordoba tourism. A perfect ride to Sunday, with time and without troubles, taking advantage of the proximity also from Santa Catalina. You can visit three stays in a single output.
