Welcome to San Ignacio de Velasco
San Ignacio de Velasco is a thriving commercial center and the largest town on the mission circuit. There's a real buzz about the place, and it's worth planning your route to include an overnight stop here. The church here is a modern reconstruction. Attached to it is an incongruous 1950s tower, which is all that remains of a second church, an ugly building that was later knocked down and replaced with the replica that occupies the site today.
