Argentina. Puerto iguazú



San Ignacio ruins were declared Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. In the heart of the rainforest, we can find the impressive remains of one of the 30 settlements developed in the land of the Guarani -between 1580 and 1767- by Jesuit priests of “Compañía de Jesus”, where almost 200 converted Guarani lived. An architectural ensemble that illustrates a significant period in the history of Argentina and Brazil, are a living testimony of the evangelization efforts of the Jesuits in South America. During the visit, the original design and details of daily life in a Mission will be explained. San Ignacio is 230 km away from the Iguazu Falls and 60 km from Posadas, capital of the province of Misiones. Pick up at the hotel early in the morning and on the way we will visit Wanda Mines, an open-pit deposit of semi-precious stones of quartz crystals, amethysts, agates and topaz, among the most important. Wand is located 40 km away from Posadas. We will arrive at the ruins of San Ignacio at noon to take the guided tour. Then we will have time for lunch (not included). The return to Iguazú is early in the afternoon, which allows you to see the main products of the region such as mate and tea plantations.
