This all-day excursion to the ruins of San Ignacio and the Wanda Mines will take you to discover the province of Misiones and its cultural heritage.
Learn more about the Jesuit ruins of San Ignacio, which were built 400 years ago, and about the local culture and history
San Ignacio, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, is still inhabited by Guarani who are known for their craftsmanship
Visit the Wanda Mines which are particularly interesting for those who are interested in gemstones, geology or jewelry
Early in the morning you are picked up from your hotels in Puerto Iguazu and drive towards San Ignacio, which is about 230 km away.
But first we go to the Wanda Mines, which were built by Polish settlers in 1936. What is special about this place is that it is an open-air mine, so you can explore the caves on foot and then visit the souvenir shop, where you will find many different handicrafts made from the stones extracted from the mine.
We continue on to San Ignacio, the remains of a civilization that built the city almost 400 years ago. The ruins had been buried under the jungle for almost two centuries, and today the right wall of the temple looks flawless. A specialized guide will accompany you throughout the tour to explain everything about the Guaranies and Jesuits who help bring this amazing place to life.
After discovering these treasures, you will be returned to your hotel at the end of the day.
