CORDOBA

COLONIA CAROYA

Departing from the City of Córdoba northward through National Route N° 9, at less than 50 kilometres we will reach these twin Towns with a population surpassing 35,000 inhabitants, which have managed to develop a prosperous farming, cattle breeding and industrial area, which also supplies a wide range of services.

The place is full of history and traditions, where the Jesuits played a major part of it by developing the large ranches which will in time set the foundations for the present days economical and cultural prosperity. This place was the access way for most of the Spanish expeditions which went to Río de la Plata from the Alto Perú.

One of the most important testimonies of the legacy left by the monks of the Order of Jesus is the Museo Jesuítico Nacional of Jesús María, also known as Estancia San Isidro, situated at the one of the sides of the old Camino Real, whose remains can still be traced at the western side of the present-day National Route N° 9.

The Casa de Caroya also rises at one side of this old road. It was at first managed by the Jesuits during colonial times, subsequently becoming the first factory which produced knifes and other alike weapons in the Country, hence becoming a settlement for Friulan immigrants circa 1878.

A little distance ahead by the Camino Real we will reach the Barranco Yaco Ravine, where Facundo Quiroga was killed.

The main economical activity of Colonia Caroya is the cropping of fruits, raisings and the elaboration of sausages. At the old winery, which has been recently re-opened, some excellent regional wines and other liquors are made.

Its tree-edged main avenue is a natural tunnel of banana trees whose treetops are intermingled. The area has some fine lodgings, although the main attraction is the local food, both towns being renowned for their restaurants, grills, chacinados and for its wine production..
