    The school that belonged to the Jesuits, which was declared a world heritage site by Unesco. The building is very old and beautiful, so explore it in one of the guided tours is highly recommended.

    Enter through its halls, see the laboratory, worn steps and some lounge with its wall and large windows seemed to be in a movie before argentina which was born. The truth, very interesting visit this building that still beats with value in downtown Cordoba.

    The main cause of the success of the monse can be summarized in a few words: ".. .educar to youth in letters, but at the same time in virtue." That is, the integral formation of man, teaching him to think for itself so that it can be truly free, and inculcating virtue and responsibility, so that it can be really cult".
