I love all of the churches and missions in the Baja. This one is a don't miss - so much history and beautiful courtyard. It seems that every church/mission we visit always has someone (usually a woman) sweeping the floors and this one was no exception. We spoke briefly with her and bought a couple of rosaries that were handmade... More

One of the oldest Missions in Baja. It definitely is the main attraction in San Ignacio. Worth your time going through the mission and the grounds.

You can just walk into the Mission and walk around inside. They also have a beautiful garden in their courtyard! No evidence of damage from the hurricane that hit there back in early 2014. It's a GORGEOUS church, worth seeing!

We enjoyed a beautiful side trip to San Ignacio while on our 10 day overlanding trip on the Baja and Baja Sur. San Ignacio is a quiet little village with a beautiful Mission on the main square. The gardens surrounding the Mission are very lush and a treat to walk through.

Lovely gardens, this is in a very quiet little town. Bring Mexican money. We had to buy something to get change from one place to pay for bathroom access with pesos.

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.

The mission church in San Ignacio is conveniently located on the town plaza and well worth a look inside. The early Baja missions were founded by Jesuits in the 1600's, then largely abandoned when the indigenous people mostly died of European diseases, then some (as this one) were re-build as churches by Dominicans. They are very different from the Alta... More

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

Step back in time and visit the La Mision de San Ignacio. We attended a mass, in Spanish, that was an incredible experience. Beautiful.
