We arrived on the weekend in Cordoba expecting to visit the Cripta. It was closed. The city needs to make big changes to accommodate tourists visiting the city. Por Favor! give someone a job on the weekends and open it up!

Nothing really interesting inside, i believe you dont have to pay unless there is an exposition but the most of the time the place is closed, is right in the middle of the ciy, so you can always check it up.

Not so much a "crypt" as the basement of a building long gone. It extends underneath one of the main streets of Cordoba. It is nicely lit, and it would probably be very enjoyable to attend one of the concerts that are held here. The entrance fee is next to nothing. If you are in the are, do stop by;... More

Although the story of the crypt is interesting, today there is not so much to it and it requires quite a bit of imagination (or comprehension of Spanish to follow one of tours) to envision what it might have been like.

Other crypts were more interesting and much larger but this is worth the 10 to 15 minutes it takes to visit. It is indeed small and easy to miss. A good visit when combined with Cathedral Square and a bus tour of downtown. PS the cost to enter is almost zero.

it is a small spot under the street = seemed like we were just crossing the street - nothing much to see here at all; a crypt in Lima, Peru was much better.

The cripta takes tops 20mins to visit. This is a recent found for the city of Cordoba. There are not tons of things to see but if you are visiting downtown Cordoba: please do not miss it.

It won't cost you much to enter (just 2 pesos) and even if it is small is still worth seeing. It's very easy to miss as the entrances are in the pedestrian shopping area and it's so easy to get distracted there!
