Cripta Jesuitica, Cordoba

3.5
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 these in the center you can visit it. Discovered not long ago. It does not take more than 15 m. Is part of the history of the place

  • The crypt itself is worth a tour to learn a little of the history of the Jesuits. The Guide should be harder on serving the public. A 30-minute visit is enough

  • Placeholder for exhibitions and visitation. The cool thing is do a guided tour to learn all Jesuit influence in the city.

  • Wide variety of ice cream flavors and very rich. It also has cafeteria service. Place large and well-conditioned.

  • We went to the crypt and had a poster that was closed until 01/02 but not explained why. The truth a sentence! I could not know him personally!
