ARGENTINA / BRAZIL - Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis: San Ignacio Mini, Santa Ana, Nuestra Señora de Loreto and Santa Maria Mayor (Argentina), Ruins of Sao Miguel das Missoes (Brazil)

"The ruins of São Miguel das Missões in Brazil, and those of San Ignacio Miní, Santa Ana, Nuestra Señora de Loreto and Santa María la Mayor in Argentina, lie at the heart of a tropical forest. They are the impressive remains of five Jesuit missions, built in the land of the Guaranis during the 17th and 18th centuries. Each is characterized by a specific layout and a different state of conservation." -

Thank you so much, Jean Pierre for this UNESCO postcard
with stamp issued in France!
I must be very interesting to visit the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. ^-^
(UNESCO has issued its own stamp since 1961---which can be used in mails posted from UNESCO Headquarters or Maison de l'UNESCO at
