This Jesuit Mission was founded in 1610 in Guayra, by Fathers Jos├ę Cataldino and Sim├│n Masseta, and in 1655, as a result of the invasions of the Mamluks, it was moved to Paranaim├í; in May of 1695 it was transferred again to the present place. It was called San Ignacio Min├ş to distinguish it from that of San Ignacio Guaz├║ previously founded.
At its peak, this Mission had more than 3,300 inhabitants and its close relationship with the Paran├í River allowed it to maintain a constant exchange with the other reductions.
