Here there are many antique shops, nice restaurants, bars and tango theaters. You'll then visit the famous town square, the Plaza de Mayo (famous for the 'silly' mothers), you will cycle along the widest avenue in the world and make a stop at one of the largest cemeteries in South America: Cementerio de la Recoleta. You ride back through the aristocratic Recoleta district, with its broad avenues and city palaces known as the "Paris of South America''.

Encarnacion - Paraguay Mission Stations

You visit Trinidad and Jesús, the best two of the many Jesuit settlements from the 17th century that originated in Paraguay. Part of the Church of Trinidad is in good condition, and displays some of the finest baroque frescoes. From the tower you have a nice overview of the complex. Jesús is not really a ruin, it is more of an unfinished building (which has remained intact). The church has no roof but the walls are well preserved. Grass and flowers grow where once lay a floor. The beautifully arched portals look like shamrocks and the gigantic guardian tower stands only partly erected. Both Trinidad and Jesús adorn the World Heritage List of UNESCO.

Included: transportation, entrance fees and English speaking guide.

€ 50.-
