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.

  • 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.

  • This crypt is in the heart of the capital of Cordoba. In the surroundings of night sleeping homeless people so open early (9 am) still is all very dirty and very foul-smelling. A pity because a great discovery is Jesuit em Cordoba. It has no more than that, could recreate the spaces, but are only walls. Cute but wanting of more history

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