Capilla Domestica Compania de Jesus, Cordoba

4.8
#4 of 20 in Museums in Cordoba
Specialty Museum Museum
Behind the lovely brick facade of Capilla Domestica Compania de Jesus, an intriguing blend of influences awaits. Consecrated in 1668, the oldest Jesuit church in Córdoba features a colorful altar, designed by an Italian architect but including distinct indigenous touches. The building's French architect had a background in shipbuilding; note how the chapels on either side of the nave resemble the port and starboard flanks of a ship. Look up and admire the intricate murals that wind across the church's curved roof.
