Jesuit Mission of San Miguel

San Miguel was founded in 1721 and is a small town, its church is considered the most historically accurate of all the restored Jesuit churches.

Jesuit Mission of San Rafael

San Rafael, the second oldest mission, shares many of the same characteristics as the rest of the missions.

Jesuit Mission of San José

San José de Chiquitos, the third of the oldest missions in Chiquitania, is similar to the town of Santa Cruz of many years ago: wide, dusty streets straight out of a Wild West movie, complete with cowboys, ranchers, and a dusty plaza. but charming.
