Great Jesuita Reduction ! Bigger than well known San Ignacio in Misiones without the crowds ! Just 30km or 45' drive from Encarnacion city, park infront the Reduction. Tip: ask for a Guarani guide to get all the insights of the daily life at the reduction and todays significance of this legacy.

Easy to get to. If you are travelling alone or as a couple it's easy to hitch there as so many people are travelling along the Ciudad del Este road. You need about an hour for the visit.

From encarnacion, take the bus to Trinidad, about 45 minutes and 10,000 guarani. You will be dropped off by the roadside and ruins is about 1.5 km from the road on the right side. Entrance to the park is 25,000 guarani. This admission is also valid for another nearby ruins 12 kms away. I did not go there. San Ignacio... More

After visiting the San Ignacio Mini ruins in Argentina, we decided to visit the Trinidad ruins in Paraguay and we loved it. The remaining of the buildings are beautiful, you get to realise how big and rich were these missions!! It was an absolute pleasure to walk around the ruins, visiting every remains of building. And the best is that... More

The largest of all the ruins left by the Jesuits. Good car park facilities and a good restaurant withing walking distance. The ruins are very well looked after. Purchased entrance tickets which include other sights. Fifteen thousand guaranies per adult (Paraguayan) and five for 60 years old and over. You will be given a very good map of Paraguay and...

Well maintained ruins with an excellent guided tour. The tour guide is well worth it as there are no signs describing the area.

From encarnacion to trinidad : 8000 guarani From... More

The guide is very experienced and did an excellent visit to the ruins. We met around 100 persons at 20:30 and the lights went on in progression as we walked in. The music is the original baroque one compossed for the Jesuit Zipoli

It's a big and well preserved site. You can visit 3 different gesuitic missions and watch the show light and sound at night.too with the same ticket. Many birds nest in the field near the walls of the ruins because there are very few tourists. We travelled by local bus easily from/to Posadas

When I visited, it was me and a stray dog that had the place to ourselves. It really does add a somewhat eerie quality to the place to have such a huge and amazing place to explore on your own without guides trying to sell you things or other tourists. The fact that the site is in the good condition... More
