The San Ignacio Mission is one of the most beautiful in Baja and well worth a visit. It also has a wonderful botanical garden with all the plants labeled.

Small, but you can join a service if you'd like to. Right on the square. Won't take long to see.

The museum next door has an actual size incredible reproduction of the ancient mural art of Sierra de San Francisco. It has stimulated us to make plans to go there to visit the mural art!
