Jesuit Missions Tours to Paraguay

The Jesuit Missions of La Santísima Trinidad de Paraná and Jesús de Tavarangue are just one of many reasons to visit Paraguay. These Jesuit missions were part of a network of 30 missions built in the Rio de la Plata region in the 17th century, when Jesuit missionaries sought to live among and evangelize the local Guarani people. The Baroque-style churches are striking, especially in juxtaposition with the subtropical forests surrounding them. After the Catholic church and Spanish and Portuguese colonists removed their approval from the Jesuits, the churches and missions were abandoned, and today they are mostly ruined foundations. There are some beautiful architectural details remaining, and the organizational structure is impressive.

While you’re visiting the Iguazu Falls, you should definitely spend some time visiting the Jesuit missions in the surrounding forests. There are Jesuit missions in Argentina, Paraguay, and even Brazil. You can spend some time exploring these missions, and also check out the Wanda mines and try some adventure tours.
