Guest Reviews:

“Spectacular cultural center, which continues with the teaching of the Jesuits, a very beautiful site and above all completely restored. I am an archaeologist and historian and I love to visit and above all to understand these sites, I would recommend that they have an optional guide service or in any case signage, where the various environments that one is visiting are identified, otherwise the site is very interesting. place, excellent” -Antonio Coello
