Jesús María Farmhouse – National Jesuit Museum
This center of activities, located on the Royal Road, gathered local aboriginal people and about 300 enslaved people from Africa who dedicated themselves, under the tutelage of the Jesuits, to agricultural, livestock and wine production.
The greatness of its wine, the Lagrimilla, is said to have reached the dining table of the kings of Spain.
The site that was a monastery, school, and factory, preserves traces of the aboriginal presence in ceramics (hunting and milling objects) and of the African Americans who left their mark in the ample constructions crowned with muslero tiles and blacksmith objects that testify to the skill of its men and women.
