Cripta Jesuitica, Cordoba

(3.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Cordoba itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Cripta Jesuitica and other attractions in Cordoba.

  • A crypt discovered by chance in the Centre of the city. Is accessed via a staircase, since is underground. The old building is now used for samples of works of art can be seen inside. A brief but interesting walk.

  • Discovered by chance during work of underground cables, it is a brief but very well illustrated walk.

  • Jesuit crypt. Historical walk. It is occasionally closed due to flooding.

  • Excellent care, caregiver helped us much with the histotria general of the city. The place is care and peace is preserved although the Street outside is chaos. The interaction between art and the preservation of the historic, not only provincial heritage, but national is a nice combination, that invites you to explore the history and events of the place with the imagination. Whoever seeks a historic nook, this is without a doubt a visit that if well short, podro added to travel through the city.
