Misiones is a depairtment locatit in the soothren region o Paraguay. Its caipital is San Juan Bautista. The aicht o Paraguay's 17 depairtments, it wis creatit in 1906, then kent as the San Ignacio Depairtment, an wis no given its present name till 1945. Its current name reflects its status as hame tae several Jesuit Reductions, or missions.

Locatit in a relatively isolatit pairt o the kintra, far frae the iceety o Asunción an ither important population centers such as Ciudad del Este an Encarnación, Misiones haes remained ane o the least developit an poorer depairtments in the kintra.
