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.

  • We visited Cordoba this last weekend, and planned to visit places we had scheduled a stroll by the Jesuit crypt. In the Town Hall tourist information office had informed us that Saturday and Sunday do not open; but this Monday 28 would be open. We arrived at one of the income to the same and it was closed; We went back to the office and they told us that 'holidays is closed'. This data was not referred to in the literature, nor they explained us anything about; There is no information in the entrance to the place. It is a pity that we could not know this place; they are precisely the holidays with greater influx of visitors, and seems a bit contradictory that the space is closed. Anyway, is the perfect excuse to return to Cordoba and visit this and other pending us.

  • This place was discovered by chance in 1989. Located in the Centre of the town, under one of the most important avenues, currently works as a Museum and site for displaying works by different artists. The guides provide complete information on the site. As a disadvantage, visiting are somewhat bounded.

  • 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.
