Ruinas de Jesús, Encarnacion

#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.

  • Beautiful place with kind and friendly staff! Definitely worth the visit!
  • Moderate ruins. Not much to see here.
  • Young children do not pay entrance. And the ticket serves for three cuts. With same input you can enter to see these ruins, the Trinity and saints Cosmas and Damian. There are very good shade trees and benches for rest. The temple was started in 1756 approximately. Failed to terminate by the expulsion of the Jesuits, but it would have been one of the major temples in the region. It also has parking for people with disabilities
