Of the set of Jesuit Missions located in the Amazon borderlands, between the old domains of Spain and Portugal, there are only six magnificent examples in the Chiquitano territory of Bolivia. They are a paradigm of the architectural fusion between European models and native constructive forms, which have also overcome periods of abandonment due to the important identity burden they bring to the population.
