Misión San Ignacio

Church in San Ignacio de Arareko

This simple stone church was built in the 18th century as a Jesuit mission, used to periodically give mass to, well, the masses. No priest lived here full time. A long, narrow church with white-washed walls, there are no pews. Instead, benches line the walls. On days mass is given, men sit on the left side, women on the right and on the wood plank floors.
