The culture rich town of San Ignacio de Mojos is situated 92 kilometers west of Trinidad, and is the proud venue of one of Boliviaâ€™s best folkloric celebrations - the Ichapekene Piesta, on July 31st, the celebration of the townâ€™s patron saint, San Ignacio de Loyola. The fiesta is a unique mix of indigenous and Jesuit traditions and has helped earn the town the titles of Folkloric Capital of the Beni and Spiritual Capital of the Southern Cone Jesuit Missions. A distinctive indigenous dialect, called Ignaciano, is also spoken in the region, and many of the local traditions are unique to the area. The town has also retained much of its architectural character from the Jesuit period.
