A 1 hour guided tour of the Manzana Jesuitical helps understand the influence of the Jesuits in this part of South America

This place is an excellent little piece is history and is a really attractive historical site. Tours are run twice daily in English for just 10 pesos (tours last about one hour). The tours let you see books from the 1500s and quite a few other historical gems. It is worth your time to do this tour.
