The Guaraní Jesuit Mission of Jesús de Tavarangüe has been recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993 and stands out for being one of the “most complete expressions of Jesuit urbanism.” In that sense, one of the most striking aspects is that this mission would have had one of the largest churches in the region.

However, due to the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767, this mission remained unfinished. Located in the Department of Itapúa, 12 km from Route VI (detour in Trinidad), 42 km from Encarnación and 12 km from Trinidad, the Mission of Jesús has an urban complex made up of the temple, the main square and even an annexed school, for example. The same, currently, a viewpoint that allows visual connection with the Guaraní Jesuit Mission of Santísima Trinidad del Paraná.

Meanwhile, another attraction is the night tour, an instance in which an audiovisual projection (3D videomapping) is carried out in which the experience of evangelization carried out by the Jesuits in South America is exhibited.
