The facade of its temple was made entirely of pink sandstone in 1610 and its American baroque design was reconstructed by a group of scientists during the last century It is that the reduction had been buried under the jungle for almost two centuries.

 

Thousands of tourists visit it every year. It is located in the heart of the town of San Ignacio, along route number 12, 60 kilometers from Posadas. The right wall of the temple today looks impeccable, since during the During the summer, a group of specialists was sprucing it up.This is possible thanks to the fact that the World Monuments Foundation donated 50,000 dollars so that, step by step, all the walls of this monument are left shining, which, due to the tropical climate of the region, tends to cover itself with small microorganisms that decompose it.
