The most complicated World Heritage site/listing we have visited to-date. Although called Alta Gracia (we think) it forms part of the wider heritage listing under Jesuit Block and Estancias of Córdoba. There are several buildings (as indicated below) spread throughout Córdoba and none of their names match those listed on the World Heritage website – all very confusing. We are going by the name on the entrance plaque, but those have been wrong on occasions too.
According to our pamphlet, the Jesuit Block in Córdoba, is the heart of the former Jesuit Province of Paraguay and contains the core buildings of the Jesuit system: the university, the church and residence of the Society of Jesus, and the college. Along with the five estancias, or farming estates, they contain religious and secular buildings, which illustrate the unique religious, social, and economic experiment carried out in the world for a period of over 150 years in the 17th and 18th centuries.
