day Tour – History and Culture at the Jesuit
Ruins of San Inácio.
About 240 Km from Foz do Iguassu, on the Argentinean
side, we find these interesting and beautiful ruins.
Guarani-Indians and Jesuit priests formed these example
communities, based on a peculiar social system. The
ruins were built during 16th & 17th centuries,
and were maintained until the colonizer from Portugal,
Spain and Brazilian Bandeirantes reached the area.
It is possible to visit of what was left from that
period (1609 – 1767). Besides the ruins, there
is an infrastructure of receiving tourists like; Museum,
illustrative material, special local guides and a
spectacle of a light show, illuminating the walls
of the ruins. You will visit houses, schools, kitchen,
and the plaza of “armas”, cemetery and
a temple. There are also sales of local made handicrafts
and typical souvenirs from the region. NOTE: As Packtours
only arranges tours in Brazil, means this that we
return to Foz do Igaussu, Brazil, in the same day,
where the accommodation will be.
