Jesuit Missions of the Río de la Plata


Focus on: Jesuit Missions of La Santísima Trinidad de Paraná and Jesús de Tavarangue

In addition to their artistic interest, these missions are a reminder of the Jesuits’ Christianization of the Río de la Plata basin in the 17th and 18th centuries, with the accompanying social and economic initiatives.
