A theatrical night light and sound show illuminates the crumbling façade of the church at the ruins of the São Miguel (Sao with a tilde on the a) mission in southern Brazil. Scores of Jesuit missions in the area where Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil meet were built in the 17th century and abandoned when the Jesuits were expelled in the 18th century. Ruins of some of these missions still haunt hilltops in the region. (Kevin Moloney for the New York Times)
