Photographer's Note

The Santisima Trinidad del Parana Mission is considered the biggest of all the missions. Natives that came from the missions of San Carlos (nowadays in territory of Argentina) were its founders in 1712.
This mission has the biggest built temple among all the Jesuit Missions, with an altar carved in a once piece stone. In it is represented the persecution of the natives at that time. It has a Central Square, the town's place of meeting and a museum, located in the old sacristy are the sculptures and a scale model of the mission.
These ruins are being restored and maintained constantly.
