We'll pick you up from your hotel in the morning, to travel outside Cordoba, by Route No 9, to Colonia Caroya, which is inhabited by descendants of immigrants from northern Italy. We will visit the Estancia Jesuítica Casa Caroya, that served as the summer residence of the college students of Monserrat.
Continue to Jesus Maria Village, famous for its festival of doma (taming) and Folklore, where we'll find the Jesuit Estancia of San Isidro Labrador, a pioneer in winemaking in the region. Following our route, visit the historic Posta Sinsacate and Barranca Yaco where the leader Facundo Quiroga was killed. Later, arrive at Estancia Santa Catalina known for its beautiful baroque church.
On the last part of our trip, we travel by the Sierras Chicas area, passing through the beautiful towns of Ascochinga, La Granja, Villa Animi, Agua de Oro, Salsipuedes and Rio Ceballos.
