The ruins of San Ignacio Miní, a seventeenth-century Jesuit mission complex, stand in the middle of the rainforest of Argentina. In an area of South America that now includes parts of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil, the Jesuits set up 30 missions to convert the indigenous Guaraní population. Built in the baroque Spanish style in 1666, San Ignacio Miní was strongly influenced by indigenous motifs. San Ignacio Miní had a central square with buildings clustered around it in accordance with the prescribed layout of all missions. The complex was equipped with a variety of resources including a hospital, a school, dormitories, and a beautiful stone church with an interior of wood.
