Ruinas de Jesús, Encarnacion
Categories: Ruins, Tourist Spots
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.

Santisima Trinidad del Parana and Jesus de Tavarangué. The visitor must warn the driver, that lets you in the hallway, having to walk some more 500 meters to gain access. The ticket entitles you to visit yet a third downfall: San Cosme y Damián, which lies in the other direction. After visiting Trinidad, walk 200 meters by one side to a gas station, where you have several options to follow Jesus, including an old bus, which is already an attraction.show original
