Cordoba - World Heritage site

Cordoba, founded in 1599.  The Jesuits built a dazzling cathedral, a monastery and crypt here. Their mission was to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to educate the people. They were very successful and this city remains the higher education center of Argentina.  The city hall complex is also magnificent as are many ancient buildings surrounding it.  In 2000 UNESCO declared this entire city center as part of the "Humanity Cultural Heritage of the World."  For the men and women and children we saw worshipping in the church and praying in the surrounding areas, this is a living Christ centered space that brings us Joy and thanksgiving.  To God be the glory.
