  • It is worth recalling that missions is much more than just the falls. Visit the Jesuit ruins (San Ignacio Miní, Santa Ana and Loreto) is an unforgettable experience that allows us to sambullirnos in the history and culture of some of our peoples, as well as the history of its domination.

  • The most important of argentina. Don't bother at loreto or san ana. An option for those who want to supercharge the visit the falls.

  • 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.

  • 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
