See the impressive ruins of one of many missions established in the region during the 17th century at San Ignacio Mini - Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis, a World Heritage Site since 1984. 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. The red sandstone walls that still stand are well preserved and atmospheric, particularly when compared to similar sites in the region.

  • We called here on a hot March day, and visited the ruins at about 5pm. Tickets were 160ARS per person, and include access to this site, as well as several other Jesuit sites within about 50km. The tic...  more »
  • The guide was expanded to explaining matters that had little to do with the visit, shame, because ruins deserve to be known without a doubt. It would improve with a more concrete approach to what were the missions and to what they became, which already is much to explain in a bit.

  • I visited these ruins in the nighttime spectacle in which make a show of lights and holograms explaining everything that happened with the Jesuit missions, should perhaps not so much for children since they do not understand very much what happens.

  • 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
