There are two main areas for Jesuit reductions in this area, along with some small museums. The history of why the Jesuits were kicked out was never explained, though, nor was the reason the places were all in ruins (earthquakes?).

Lots of interesting history. Well organized. Prices reasonable. Wish we had planned to see it lit up at night.

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.

A set of ruins on a hill with an overlook at the surrounding country. A most beautiful spot. A cool breeze is gotten here along with ruins that must be seen.

You can get the ticket at the entrance, it costs 25000 guaraníes and you can use the same ticket to visit other sites near Encarnación (the ticket is valid for 3 days). Get a guided tour - they will let you go all the way...More

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
