  • This room, located at the foot of el Camino Real, about 4 Km from the stay Caroya, was characterized by its high degree of quality wine production. Construction, typical of the era was made with walls of stone and adobe brick floors, ceilings of carob wood cane and Texas. The building has two floors with a distribution similar to the of the other Jesuit estancias Cordoba: the temple, rooms with galleries and courtyard. These galleries of upper and lower floors, covered with vaults and roof top of cabriadas mezzanine. Within the rooms runs the National Jesuit Museum, which currently has 18 rooms, distributed between ground floor and first floor. Very interesting is the collection of 17TH and 18th century colonial religious art and archeology and ethnography of the Northwest and the Argentine Centre for material. The signs of sacred ornaments, engravings of different periods, coins, furniture and tableware are. You can also see a kitchen with fireplace and punts and pots that served the North army. In terms of Church, American Baroque influence, it has a Latin cross and a beautiful dome in whose pendentives there are four angels of native physiognomy and four heads carrying Aboriginal headpieces. On the top floor is accessed the staircase which leads to the belfry, the Tribune and the choir of the Church. Sanitary, very advanced for the time, facilities can also be observed since the Jesuits raised their bathrooms dependencies inside with a sewer system through irrigation ditches. The whole is in very good condition. In 1941, the National Commission for Museum and monuments and historical places declared national historical monument stay and since the year 2000, part of the UNESCO World Heritage list. You can visit the stay from Tuesday to Friday from 8 to 19 hs. and weekends from 10 am to 12 and from 14 to 18. You are not allowed to take photographs inside the rooms, but if in the chapel.
