These are the Santa Ana Jesuitic Mission remains, it integrated the Jesuitic missions system for the Guaranies aborigins that the jesuit established on a wide territory called Misiones, part of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay today. They were built on the XVIIth century and were destroyed along several wars on XIXth century, this is the reason some of them, like Santa Ana Mission look in very bad condition, the Jesuitic mission remains are under UNESCO protection and will be rebuild using the original stones.
