The Unique Cultural History Of The Jesuit Missions

The south of Paraguay's main attraction is the Jesuit Missions. Founded in the 17th and 18th centuries, these missions were established Jesuit missionaries created to convert and educate the indigenous Guaraní communities on farming techniques, music, and the arts. Visitors will encounter picturesque landscapes of lush rolling pastures, and enjoy an immersive experience of Paraguayan rural life by staying at an estancia. Whilst here it is possible to explore the well-preserved ruins of UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Trinidad and Jesús de Tavarangüé, among others, to witness the architectural beauty and religious significance of these Jesuit sites. Additionally, it is possible to visit yerba mate plantations, known as “the tea of the Jesuits”.
