Cripta Jesuitica, Cordoba

3.0
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.

  • If you are walking through the center of town, it's worth going down to meet the crypt. Interesting construction that was discovered accidentally in a work.
