6 Days / 5 Nights
See the Iguassu Falls & the Ruins of 17th-century Jesuit Missions - Tour Extension
During the 17th-century, Jesuit missionaries from Spain headed deep into the forests in present-day northeastern Argentina and eastern Paraguay. The indigenous people of the Guarani tribe lived in these forests, and the Jesuits sought to convert them to Christianity. They built ornate baroque missions and community dwellings deep in the jungle, where the missionaries lived side-by-side with the Guarani for a century and a half. Eventually the Jesuits were ousted, but the ruins of the missions remain, as well as some Guarani tribes. Visit the ruins of these beautiful missions, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on this 6 day Iguassu Falls & Jesuit Missions tour.
