I was unlucky since I visited there during Semana de Santa. We can not enter the museum and only the church was open.

A beautiful estancia, in the same family for 250 years. The tour was fascinating and the guide very knowledgeable. The tours are in Spanish, not English. A Unesco World Heritage site. Getting to it from Córdoba is half the fun. The roads are mostly unsaved and the views amazing.

I did a tour of the 3 Jesuit estancias North of Cordoba, and it was very interesting to see not only the old churches, but also to get the history of the Jesuits in Argentina. They were the first order to introduce education along with trying to convert the natives. Next stop was the Jesus Maria National Jesuit Museum and lastly the Carozza House, which functions as a museum.
If you are in Cordoba, I would definitely suggest you take this tour to hear about the rich history of Catholicism in this area and it's impact on the area. It's pretty much an all day trip.

We arrived by taxi from Jesus Maria and were eagerly greeted by the caretaker/greeter. He gave us a great tour of the church, but we weren't able to view the rest of the estancia because it wasn't open or accessible.

Santa Catalina is the only Jesuit estancia in private hands (been in the same family for 250 years!). It is actually incredible, you travel what seems for ever on a dirt road, turn a corner and you are in front of the biggest colonial church ever. You either go with a tour or a rental car, there is no other way to get there by public transportation.

The only way to get there (I think) is by taxi/remise. There's no buses that I could find. It's 12km down a dirt road, and there's very little else to do once you're there. There's some artisan shops and a posada. The posada is kinda cool because they converted the old slaves' quarters into sleeping quarters.

If you go, don't go on Saturday. Only the church is open then. If you want to see the rest of the old mission, go on a weekday.

We stayed at the Estancia for one Night. What a fantastic place. Beautiful, quiet and a great history. The room was great, so was the host, even though we could not speak spanish, we felt very welcome. By far the best place we have stayed in Argentina.

A private and closed UNESCO heritage site. Bad attention. You couldn't go any further because the “owners” are there… some gentlemen ask you for money (1,500 pesos per person) to be able to look at the church without taking photos inside. The value of the tickets is not known if they go to the owner of the ranch or what... To get there you have to cross 13 km of gravel. And the local people seem like the slaves of the ranch.

Excellent visit, very interesting history it keeps. Marcelo guides a great character, telling from the origin to the present.
