With its population reaching around 3,000 people--primarily natives--during the 18th century, the site was largely destroyed in 1817 by the indigenous population.

  • Visit the ruins of San Ignacio Miní is a unique experience and safety pin. You can tour by day and by night, the best thing is to be able to enjoy two visits. Contemplate and understand how living the Jesuits there along with a beautiful architecture make these ruins a unique place. I hope to be able to return, I fell in love with this old city.

  • Day, you can see a wonderful setting of one of the Jusuiticas reductions of the colonial era that power should be supplemented with the nocturnal visit although it continues to be extremely nilustrativo the work of the society of Jesus at the beginning of the conquest.

  • Visit mandatory if you are going to missions or cataracts. Highly recommended, excellent conservation of the ruins, great maintenance of the environment, staff of the place and the people are very friendly. I recommend the visit day and night, having to pay on both occasions. the entry fee is 150 $A. The spectacle of the night, through the use of lights and sounds, you move at the time.

  • Really nice Jesuitical missions. Also the night illuminations are impressive with the 3D effect. However it's a pity that there is no discount on the price if you take the Day and night show.
  • Very interesting for local and foreing people. Shows many aspects of the place's history and culture.
  • If you are in the vicinity, do go. If you are in porto iguazu, we thought the length of the trip is too long for what it is.
  • It really worth the visit. I went by bus (local bus) and the travel it took me four and a half hours.... But if you go with a tourist bus I think it would take like three hours. In that place you can do first the tourist guide, that is 40 minutes. Then I would recommend going by yourself and enjoy the place without so many people
  • heeeeeeermoso
