Jesuit Ruins in Misiones

the Jesuit ruins in San Ignacio Miní.We learned about its history, its days of glory and its subsequent disappearance.Take a tour around the beginnings of the new world.The day after we enjoyed the natural show of the Iguazu Waterfalls, we traveled inland in the Province of Misiones.This time we visited the famous Jesuit ruins of San Ignacio Mini, declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 1984.We set out with great expectations.We would be visiting one of the most emblematic reductions in America, the one featuring the best restoration conditions as compared with other reductions in the Order.We already knew that the aim of this mission was to evangelize the Guarani natives.After traveling along National Route 12 for three hours heading Southwards, we arrived at the village of San Ignacio, where the ruins are located.We paid for the entrance ticket and we entered the mission that gives testimony of the labor done by the Jesuits, where the native culture once mingled with the European heritage without any kind of violence.Today, only vestiges remain of a settlement where science and art were part of the union between the white man and the guaraní people.
