Ruinas de Jesús, Encarnacion

4.7
#3 of 10 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 .

  • Awareness of the wealth of culture is very comforting. Impressive toured with ruins of a culture transmitted to the legitimate community well-being. Very sophisticated architecture... not to be missed.

  • If you have the possibility to get closer to this place it should be done. Beautiful and very well restored buildings. They are very neat with Service Guide and private security inside. They are 40 km from the city of Encarnación by the sixth path. Worth visiting the Holy Trinity Mission first, since they are a few blocks from the route, instead to access the Jesus to a distance of 12 km from the route, passing through the village of Jesus which is where they are located. Both the building and the landscape are wonderful. The entrance has a cost of $130 Argentine. And it is worth to enter the two missions of incarnation and the Mission of Saints Cosmas and Damian in the route 1.
