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.

While many missions are located in the mountains of Baja, this beautiful old mission is located at the town square.

After driving through some beautiful desert countryside, take a break and visit San Ignacio. The 100 year old laurel trees surrounding the town square provide the traveler with ample shade and comfort under which to have a relaxing lunch while contemplating the 3 foot walls of the Spanish Mission church that anchors one end of the square. A typical, tidy,... More
