If you are in the area do take the time to visit this place. The guides are helpful although not all speak fluent English. It's also a great place to take pictures, the scenery is spectacular.

If you are in the area or you are planning to come, make sure you either read up on the history or watch The Mission. It will help to bring it to life. Not crowded, unspoilt GREAT photo opportunities

While interesting enough this Jesuit site was abandoned before it was completed. The ruins at Trinidad are a better choice if you are only going to visit one ruin.
