Caroya or Caroyapa is a term of Quichua origin , meaning “leather face” . This word appears in the writings of the foundation of Cordoba. As a locality, this place begins to be recognized thanks to Argentine President Nicolás Avellaneda . This character in Argentine history passed through these lands after opening the Central del Norte railway , which connected Cordoba and Tucumán . In his passage, he discovered the estancia de Caroya founded by the Jesuits in 1616. Later, already in 1878, there was the arrival of immigrants from the Italian region of Friuli. And that was the date that was established as the foundation of the city. That is why on this day the National Sagra de la Grape is celebrated.
This place was the first vine producer in the whole province . And it was declared a colony with irrigation inhabited by Italian farmers. This story turns it into a winemaking paradise. Its wines, as well as its salames and cheeses are famous in Argentina.
An unmissable Caroese tour is the Wine Trail in Cordoba . Where you can visit different wineries and make tastings of premium wines.On this tour you can visit eighteen wineries, each with its particular attraction.
In these lands, in addition to drinking wine, you can get to know a little bit of our history.This can be done by visiting the Jesuit Estancia de Colonia Caroya .

Colonia Caroya is ready for tourism. From campsites, cottages and hotels, to hostels and wineries that provide accommodation. Because in its traditional and regional festivals it receives people from all over the world. It is also a paradise for those who love to eat and events related to the production of gourmet products.
