Alta Gracia Looks Straight Out of A Series of Unfortunate Events
The town of Alta Gracia is a short 45-minute bus ride from Córdoba capital and feels like a world away. Eerily quiet, decayed and ramshackle, but with a stellar view of the Sierras Chicas mountains, Alta Gracia is a perfect day trip. The two must-see sites are the Museo Casa del Che, a museum about Che Guevara located at the house where the icon spent his teenage years, and the Jesuit estancia, built in the 17th century as a part of the Jesuit block of Córdoba.
Buses between Córdoba and Alta Gracia run every half hour; you can purchase inexpensive tickets at the bus terminal.
