Introducing San Ignacio Miní

The best preserved of the Argentine missions, San Ignacio Miní, is the central attraction of this small town north of Posadas. You could visit from Posadas or on your way to Iguazú, but a better idea is to stay the night; the hotels are comfortable, and you’ll have a chance to check out the sound and light show at the ruins as well as Quiroga’s house; both are worthwhile.

San Ignacio is 56km northeast of Posadas via RN 12. From the highway junction, the broad Av Sarmiento leads about 1km to the center, where Rivadavia leads six blocks north to the ruins. At the highway junction is a helpful tourist office (7am-9pm).
