The Jesuit building complex at Cordoba incorporates the main buildings important to the Jesuit religious system, a university: the University of Cordoba, a collage: The Monserrat Secondary School, a church and residences. Where the ‘Society of Jesus’ could spread their message of education and evangelisation in the new world. Farms and Estancias were then built up around the settlement to provide for the communities creating a fusion of European missionary and traditional lifestyles over a period of 150 years. Settled in 1599, these buildings were maintained by local secular communities when the Jesuits were expelled from the continent and are now a World Cultural Heritage site.
