Voted as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, Iguazu Falls is undoubtedly the most visited place in Misiones and one of the most imposing natural attractions in Argentina and the World.
There are more than 270 falls in an area where cliffs and islets are scattered in a half moon. From the visitors center you can walk around trails or in a picturesque train.
We traveled inland in the Province of Misiones. This time we visited the famous Ruins of San Ignacio Miní, declared World Heritage by UNESCO.
We set out with great expectations. We would be visiting one of the most emblematic Jesuit reductions in America, the one featuring the best restoration conditions as compared with other reductions in the Order.
Imagining that the course of a river falls sideways sounds illogical, as if it was a description in a science fiction story. But such a place exists and it is called Saltos del Moconá.
A geographic feature makes the river to be higher on one margin. As a consequence, when the volume of water is low, the waters fall on themselves sideways.
