About Cripta Jesuitica, Cordoba

Built at the beginning of the 18th century by the Jesuits, the Cripta Jesuítica was originally designed as a novitiate and later converted to a crypt and crematorium. Abandoned after the Jesuit expulsion, it was demolished and buried around 1829 when the city, while expanding Av Colón, knocked the roof into the subterranean naves and built over the entire structure.

It remained all but forgotten until Telecom, while laying underground telephone cable in 1989, accidentally ran into it.

The city, with a new outlook on such treasures, exquisitely restored the crypt and uses it regularly for musical and theatrical performances and art exhibits. Entrances lie on either side of Av Colón in the middle of the Rivera Indarte pedestrian mall.

  • Gran variedad de gustos de helado y muy ricos. También cuenta con servicio de cafetería. Lugar grande y bien acondicionado.

  • Muy rico culturalmente, horarios muy limitados para visitar y poco personal que te explique algo

  • Fuimos hasta la cripta y había un cartel de que estaba cerrado hasta el 01/02 pero no explicaba porqué. La verdad una pena!! No pude conocerlo personalmente!

  • Fui a visitarla cuando se inauguró No sé si aún está habilitada para ser visitada
