SAN IGNACIO RUINS TOUR

Valid from:  January to December  2013
Minimun: 2 people

Entrance fee included - San Ignacio Jesuitic
Ruins departs only on Wednesday and Saturday at
07:45 from Argentinean hotels and at 07:00 from
Brasilian Hotels/shared Service.
Durations: 10 hs aprox

We visit one of the most emblematic reductions in America, the one featuring the best restoration conditions as compared with other reductions in the Order. The aim of this mission was to evangelize the Guarana­ natives.
We arrive at the village of San Ignacio, where the ruins are located, and we enter 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 guarana­ people.
A local guide will tell us 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.
As we move about the venue, we start to admire various buildings made with red sandstone blocks.
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.
We learn that the buildings in the mission feature a Baroque conception. We could also see the elaborate designs on the stones carved with silhouettes of angels, doves and local plants, on which the guarana­ stereotypes may be observed.
Rate above is not valid for Festive Season: Christmas and New Year's Eve period of time.
