  • It is a museum that works in a sector of the convent of the Discalced Carmelites. Located half a block from the Cathedral. Displays an important collection of religious art from the colonial period. In addition to the tour you can see the way of life of the nuns. It is shocking to see the reception room where the nuns received visits, fully insulated by a double lattice wrought iron and wood, which prevented any eye contact is also very enlightening to visit the extremely poor internal cells and austere. In short for lovers of historical themes, it's an attractive Museum. To highlight the Guide shown on the various sectors in a way very didactiva.

  • The building where is located the Tejeda Museum is located in the central area of the city of Córdoba and dates back to the 17th century. The solar originating on which was built the first House was donated to Tejeda Tristan and his son, John, was who built the first building on this site. The construction included the rancheria for slaves, for carriages and carts, domestic animals and a garden site. Later, in 1628, he founded the Discalced Carmelite monastery and the Church of Santa Teresa. The Museum is located inside the monastery Juan de Tejeda and was in the House where he was born 400 years ago Luis de Tejeda, first Argentine poet. Accessed at the same by a portal reminiscent of Andalusian and Portuguese architecture. Walls that delimit cells are lime and song and cult objects from the 17TH, 18th and 19th centuries, this and other temples, destacadose the Lord of patience, single piece which comes from the ancient monastery of las Catalinas, a portable Altar with size poly chrome finish and a crucifix painted with relics of San Ignacio de Loyola, among others. Towers of the Cathedral can be seen from the patio of the first cloister. The exhibition of the objects is well signposted and explained, becoming very interesting visit. The House, which was declared a national historic monument in 1941, is in very good condition and is as interesting as the material presented. The Museum operates from Monday to Thursday from 9 to 16 pm, Friday from 9 to 20 and on Saturday from 10 to 13.30 pm and the entrance is $20. You can also take guided tours.

Works in which out of the family home Tejeda at the site of the founder of Córdoba, Jerónimo Luis de Cabrera would give Foundation fellow Tejeda Tristan and where inhabited by his sons John and Eleanor, and the son of John , Luis de Tejeda, the first poet of Cordoba. The Museum is organized in rooms surrounding one of the eight courtyards which currently belong to the order of the Teresas and which occupy almost the entire block. From the inner courtyard with colonial galleries there is one of the best views of the dome of the Cathedral. Among the most valuable pieces, given that the treasure of the Cathedral is retained, include a carving of San Pedro in wooden polychrome and articulated, a banner of the Emperor Carlos V embroidered in silver, portable altars, altar coverings, chasubles, relics of Saint Teresa of Avila, aunt, grandmother of Juan de Tejeda, a crucifix painted with relics of San Ignacio de Loyola, monstrances, goblets and carpets. It is worth highlighting the small adjoining room to the courtyard which served as the Oratory of the family and later the room of John who do fall ill open a small window that faces the inside of the adjoining Church and from where he could hear mass.
