San Ignacio Ruins and Wanda Mines Trip

During the tour, you will learn about the history of the Jesuit Priest Roque González de Santa Cruz, who, in the 17th-century, founded a mission aimed at evangelizing the native population. You may recognize these ruins from the famous film "The Mission" by Roland Joffé.
Before returning to the bus and setting off again, you will have your own free time to have lunch in the town of San Ignacio.
Then we continue our adventure, exploring the mines of Wanda, an important source of semi-precious stones exploited by Polish miners. Quartz, Amethyst, Topaz, and Agate are just some of the fantastic minerals that you will see during the tour. These raw materials are used in the local production of fantastic jewelry.
