  • Wedding of my brother Emi, is the dream place to marry, is a paradise... The chapel something indescribable what takes you back in history. Beautiful place.

  • The experience of visiting the place is very good if you like nature, architecture and history. The Chapel is located in a fairly remote area, several hours of the Center. But for the historical value and the architecture, it is worth to go. Going to Candonga, making horseback riding in the mountains can be leveraged. An excellent overview to enjoy the beauty and solitude of the landscape.

  • The best of the trip to Candonga to visit the chapel begins in bakery the Viennese town El Pueblito where I bought the best polvorones, pan criollo and lamb (typical Cordoba) richer; It continues along a winding path that gives wonderful views up to the chapel that looks as seen on postcards.
