San Ignacio

San Ignacio Miní is the best preserved among the Jesuit missions of the 16th and 17th centuries in Argentine territory. A central square is surrounded by the church, the Casa de los Padres (monastery), the cemetery, houses, and the cabildo (town hall).

San Ignacio was built with large pieces of the native rock, red sandstone.

The magnitude of the construction works has allowed most walls to stand the test of time.

The San Ignacio Miní Jesuit Reduction, together with Nuestra Señora de Loreto, Santa Ana, and Santa María la Mayor (located in Argentina), were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 1984.

In addition, the city of San Ignacio is a tourist centre that offers splendid sights such as the Teyú Cuaré rock, the Yabebirí river, and natural beauties scattered across its territory, all within the framework of the majestic native flora found in every corner.

Teyú Cuaré Provincial Park

Located in San Ignacio, it was created in order to protect a rock outcrop with a unique scenic beauty. Its natural caverns are home to several species of bats. This place has historical and cultural value and it has inspired the writings of Horacio Quiroga.
