Visit the Jesuit ruins in San Ignacio. Learn about its history, its days of glory and its subsequent disappearance. Take a tour around the beginnings of the new world. Travel inland from Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil or Iguazu in Argentine inside the Province of Misiones until the famous Ruins of San Ignacio Miní, declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 1984. Today, only vestiges remain of a settlement where science and art were part of the union between the white man and the guaraní people. A local guide will tell you the history of the mission and talk about the various ups and downs it had to go through until the Jesuit Order was expelled by King Charles III of Spain. The layout of the city is one of the most notorious works carried out by the Jesuits. The plaza de armas – turned into a central yard nowadays–, the cabildo (ancient town hall), the church and the houses of the religious men and the natives, the hospital, the college, the workshops and the stores are part of the buildings that have given shape to this settlement.
