Jesuit triangle: “Estancias Jesuiticas”, testimonies of our identity
We will leave Córdoba by the RN 9 until Colonia Caroya, place where immigrants settled from the north of Italy and famous for their homemade salamis. There we will visit the Jesuit Estancia “Casa de Caroya”, which was the summer residence of the students of the Monserrat School (Córdoba). Next, we will go to Jesús María, known for hosting the Festival of Dressage and Folklore, where we will visit the Jesuit Estancia “San Isidro Labrador”, once a pioneer in the wine production of the area.
Then we will visit the historic “Posta Sinsacate” and the area of Barranca Yaco, where the mythical caudillo Facundo Quiroga was assassinated at the beginning of the 19th century. From there, we will go to the Santa Catalina Jesuit Estancia, known for the beauty of its baroque church. Finally, through the Sierras Chicas, and passing through the picturesque villages of Ascochinga, La Granja, Villa Animí, Agua de Oro and Río Ceballos, we will return to Córdoba through the RP E-53.
