Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Litoral / Province of Misiones / San Ignacio / Ruinas de San Ignacio
A former Jesuit mission and a World Heritage Site, Ruinas de San Ignacio is a huge architectural complex featuring the remnants of various buildings, the most notable of which is a massive church built from red sandstone. The original plan of the settlement included a main square, a town hall, a monastery, a cemetery, a hospital, a school, residential houses, workshops, and stores. Today, the whole complex is overgrown by dense vegetation but still accessible. Take a guided tour and learn something about the history of the Guarani Indians and the role of Jesuit priests. Don't miss the church's "Guarani Baroque" portal with two restored reliefs and Corinthian pillars. Plan a trip to San Ignacio easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Ruinas de San Ignacio Reviews
Passeio muito bom, cansativo para quem faz bate-volta como nós fizemos vindo de Foz do Iguaçu mas que vale muito a pena. A guia turística falou em um espanhol lento para ajudar os brasileiros e outros... more »Very nice ride, tiring for hit-back like we did coming from Foz do Iguaçu but that is very worthwhile. The tour guide spoke in a slow Spanish to help the Brazilians and other tourists. Worth the visit:)
Esta igual q hace varios años, solo q ahora te cobran más 30 pesos para entrar al 2do museo, además de la entrada general q es de 130 pesos para cualquier Argentino. Había baños q no funcionaban.

There were bathrooms that were not working. Need more maintenance.
Un paseo imperdible si te gusta la historia. El complejo abarca unas 8 manzanas, las cuales vas a caminar al rayo del sol porque hay poca sombra, sugiero llevar algún sombrero/gorro y agua para beber ... more »A trip not to be missed if you like history. The complex comprises 8 blocks, which you will walk to the ray of the Sun because there is little shade, I suggest to wear any Hat/hat and water to drink during the journey.
Would not recommend on a hot day. There is little shade but still a cool place to see
Interesting place to visit on the way to Iguazu
A wonderful place full of history. Nice landscapes. The guides are very polite
It's a gorgious place - and it says somehow as much about present as about past: How complicated the administration, how poor the installations and informations!? It's a risk of World Heritages all over the world that they take the money but do not use it to maintain the heritage. In San Ignacio, they do so - that's why it's not five stars.
Very good presentation. The guides explain the history of the Jesuits and the ruins.
