4.8
#3 of 7 in Things to do in Encarnacion
The red brick walls and columns at Ruinas de Jesús once belonged to a 17th-century Jesuit mission, and today remain as a World Heritage Site. The ruins include a church, a school, a major square, and lodgings for orphans and widows known as the Great House. Jesuits started to build the church, which was to be one of the largest in the area, in 1756, but had to abandon it when they were expelled from the country ten years later. Visit the museum to learn more about the history of the place. See Ruinas de Jesús and all Encarnacion has to offer by arranging your trip with our Encarnacion trip itinerary planning tool .

  • Excellent ride! Very well preserved ruins and the guides are excellent! From downtown or the waterfront of incarnation, you can hire vans, or there are also groups that they depart from the terminal and stop on the route. With an input of 25000 Gs (less than $5) have access to three ruins (Holy Trinity, Jesus de Tavarangue and Santos Cosme), matter of time were able to visit only the first two, and they are worth!
