Santiago de Chiquitos

Santiago de Chiquitos is a town in the eastern Bolivia, Santa Cruz department.


Santiago de Chiquitos is jesuit mission town in a perfect nature setting. While its church is not under UNESCO protection, its nature makes visiting this town very pleasing. The local community is very active, respects the nature here and resists any government or private effort to exploit it for minerals and other richnesses. This respectful approach of the local community attracted the eyes and the hearts of somebody in European Union leading UE to finance paving the road from Roboré to Santiago.
