Northeastern Argentina, Argentina
A three-hour drive from Awasi Iguazu lie three UNESCO World Heritage missionary ruins, San Ignacio Miní, Nuestra Señora de Loreto and Santa Ana. Explore with your private guide and gain an understanding of how the Jesuits came to mix with the Guaraní.
For those with an interest in history, architecture and culture, a visit to these 17th and 18th century ruins of Jesuit settlements reveals the rich past of the area, and the encounters between the Guarani tribes and Jesuit missionaries who had arrived to educate the local people and attempt to convert them to Christianity.
