World Heritage Greetings: #2 Jesuit Missions, Paraguay

Today we received World Heritage Greeting #2 from the Jesuit Missions of La Santísima Trinidad de Paraná and Jesús de Tavarangue, Paraguay.


“The ruins of the Jesuit Reductions in the heart of South America: A bridge to the past and a place of silence and reflection. On the trail of the Guaranís, an indigenous nation, whose culture is still alive, especially in the language and local handicrafts. Paraguay fascinates and touches us!”

Kathrin Isabelle Krautheimer and Finja Beukemann are currently volunteers in the »kulturweit« programme in Asunción, Paraguay. Kathrin works at the Comisión Nacional Paraguaya de Cooperación con la UNESCO and Finja at the Goethe-Institut. »kulturweit« is an international cultural volunteer service for young adults and a project of the German Commission for UNESCO, financed by the German Federal Foreign Office.
