The site is nice enough, not worth travelling miles for but if you find yourself around Encarnacion, definately don't miss this place! At the beginning there is a possibility to watch a short video about the Jesuits, but it would have been nice if there...More

Make sure you go at night for the light show!!! There are several former Jesuit missions or reductions in this part of Paraguay, but these ones in Trinidad are the most well known and interesting, although not the best preserved. The monumental collapsed church is...More

Well worth stopping for this and learning a bit of what happened here: a great social experiment. Well restored ruins and some good info in the museum. A beautiful place.

“Surprising!” We hated Ciudad del Leste, so we were really surprised when we got to Encarnation. The city is nicer, cleaner, safer and way better. We visited the three Missions nearby and loved it. We ended up staying for the night show in Trinidad, but...More

This is the most complete of the Jesuit ruins and with a good guide will give you real insight into the lives and culture of that period in Paraguay's history. We saw pictures of it at night when it is lit up and wish we...More

We started with the movie... not as much information as I had hoped. (English version is difficult to understand.) Then we walked with a knowledgeable and kind guide. It must have been bustling and beautiful in its glory... now quiet, evocative.
