Cripta Jesuitica, Cordoba

3.5
#8 of 21 in Historic Sites in Cordoba
Explore a long-lost historical site, which now houses contemporary cultural exhibits and a museum, at Cripta Jesuitica. Constructed by Jesuits in 1608, the building was originally a novitiate, before later becoming a crypt and crematorium. After the Jesuit expulsion, the site was abandoned and eventually buried under the expanding city above. Rediscovered in 1989 by a company laying underground telephone cables, the refurbished site now acts as an atmospheric setting for theatrical and musical performances, art exhibits, and historical tours.

    The crypt is in the middle of the chaos of super crowded streets. On the way down you are faced with a parallel world hidden in history. Worth knowing and understanding your history

    The crypt is located at Av Jesuitica Collon number 100. You certainly will pass by her and won't understand. Localiza_se underground and the input is performed by a gate located on the sidewalk. Free admission and you know a little of the influence of the Jesuits in the city.

    A dirty, smelly and abandoned place... The last cleaned were the Jesuits a few centuries ago. It is not worthwhile or stop there
