The Ruins of the Jesús de Tavarangue and Trinidad del Paraná Jesuit Missions

From 1609 to 1768, the missionaries of the Society of Jesus evangelized Christianity to the native Guarani Tribe in southern Paraguay, northeastern Argentina, and southern Brazil.
These integrated settlements (Reduccion), which were inhabited by the Guarani, were constructed by the Jesuits. The remains of these villages were registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993.
