As a historic place, this is a fascinating mix of European religious tradition mixed with local indigenous cultural tradition. And as a UNESCO site, it is well-preserved and restored. The grounds are attractive as well. And there are interactive elements that could provide a lot...More

The ruins of the former monastry are already extremely fascinating during day light - the area is huge and gives a little impression how much energy and investment have been spent there. But the real highlight is the light show at night, telling the history...More

Very interesting history and beautiful ruins. But not enough time spent on the more gruesome details of the Guaranies' lives in the Mission, and how they came to live and work there. After prompting the tour guide I received a very vague and neutral answer....More

We visited in the late morning and bought tickets at the entrance for 200 pesos (this is the price for non-Argentinian residents). They run guided tours regularly which is included in the ticket price. We needed an English guide and as they don't get loads...More

We called here on a hot March day, and visited the ruins at about 5pm. Tickets were 160ARS per person, and include access to this site, as well as several other Jesuit sites within about 50km. The ticket does not include the sound and light...More

It's a gorgious place - and it says somehow as much about present as about past: How complicated the administration, how poor the installations and informations!? It's a risk of World Heritages all over the world that they take the money but do not use...More

It is an amazing experiment the one done by Jesuits in this area of Southern America. Communism driven by religion. And it worked. I recommend everyone to read all about the experience and to seethe movie on this.
