Today we want to tell you the traditions of the Argentine Intangible Cultural Heritage that have been relieved in the province of Misiones.


The  Ministry of Culture of the Nation  has been carrying out, for some time, the survey of the Argentine Intangible Cultural Heritage. It is a tool to gather and share information about  cultural manifestations  that form part of the identity of communities in Argentina.
