San Ignacio Jesuit Missions And Wanda Mines

San Ignacio Jesuit Missions And Wanda Mines
Descripción

First, we make a trip trough National Rout Nº 12. 
We pass by small towns and plantations, until arriving at the Ruins of San Ignacio. This construction dates to the 17th century, when the Jesuit missionaries settled the region.

The guide explains the construction system, the life and customs of the Guaraní Indians, and how they were Christianized. We will visit the San Ignacio Jesuit Missions, where we can see the missions before the arrival of Jesuits and then we visit the Ruins, the cemetery, the church, the gardens and housings. 

To finish the excursion we visit the Wanda Mines. They are a deposit of semiprecious stones, which is found 40km from Puerto Iguazú

During this guided excursion, you can visit the quarry, and see quartz crystal, amethysts, topaz, and agate in their “natural” state. There is a store to buy sculpted stones and jewelry.
