Highlights / General details
Among the thick jungle missionary relief stands the ruins of San Ignacio Reduction, the remains of a civilization, designed by Jesuits and Guarani and built by hands that stood out for its efficiency almost 400 years ago.
The facade of the temple was made ??entirely with pink sandstone in 1610 and its American Baroque design was rebuilt by a group of scientists in the last century. The reduction had been buried under the jungle for nearly two centuries.
Thousands of tourists visit it every year. It is located in the heart of the town of San Ignacio, on Route No. 12, 60 kilometers from Posadas. Today, the right wall of the temple looks flawless, because during the summer a group of specialists was "grooming" it.
This was made possible by the World Monuments Foundation, who donated $50,000. It's a step by step process to preserve all the walls of this monument, which due to the tropical climate of the region tend to be covered with small microorganisms that slowly break them down.
