One of the Jesuit ruins

A little further away from the ruins at Trinidad, the 'Jesus' ruins are included in the ticket price for seeing the entire Jesuit ruins circuit. You can almost certainly find a taxi to take you between the two sites, but for the hardy, it's also possible

Safe spot for a stroll

If you just want to step outside the rather muddled town centre of Encarnacion, the modern walk ways that stretch all along the lake front, with views of Posadas and the bridge that links the two countries of Argentina and Paraguay, makes a good spot to s

RnR at city centre beach

There's precious little enough to do in Encarnacion, so it's handy they have recently added a river side walk and beach area; a place to come and relax in the sunshine, even in winter. There's lots of fast food joints, cycle hiring, typical beach things,

Parroquia Catedral Nuestra Senora

Reviewed By Jarko2015 - Amsterdam, The NetherlandsAmsterdam, The Netherlands

Mix of tradition and modern

The largest church in Encarnacion, the cathedral is still relatively small, but nonetheless very interesting. Since there's so little to see in the town, this is thus becomes a 'must see' stop. A modern structure, with modern decor, there's still some int

Relaxing place to watch people

Surrounded by a couple schools, some shops, a few banks, and a Ukranian Orthodox church, this peaceful little plaza has something for everyone. A new park (2014) offers kids swings, slides, see-saws, and several little castles to run between. There are ev

Lindo lugar

Está en El Barrio San Pedro, opuesto a la Costanera Bolik. Tiene hermosas figuras en mosaico coloridas. No es un lugar excepcional, pero vale la pena visitarlo. Para ir en familia.

Iglesia Ortodoxa San Jorge

Looks great from the outside

This very small church looks fascinating from the outside, resembling a cheap, economy version of St Basil's in Moscow. What it's like inside, I'll never know, as it never seems to be open, no matter what day or what time I came by. Presumably that change

Iglesia Nuestra Senora de la Inmaculada Concepcion

Reviewed By Norton G - Santa Maria, RSSanta Maria, RS

Visual simples e sóbrio

A igreja fica ao lado da 'Plaza de Armas' e anexa a um colégio da cidade com o mesmo nome. Ela é pequena e tem uma fachada bastante simples e despojada. Não pude conhecê-la internamente porque estava fechada.
