Holy week in Cordoba - La Universidad Nacional de Cordoba

Cordoba´s national University, located at the "Manzana jesuitica" is one of the most prestigious universities in Argentina, the forth oldest in the Americas, besides having been declared a World heritage site by the U.N.

Founded by the Jesuits in the 17th century, it still functions as an University, but can also be visited. It has been completely restored and holds a Library with unique books.

Since it was taken from the Jesuits when they were expelled from the Spanish domains in the 18th century, it has switched hands till it settled as a state run university.
