nice for historical value

the mission is small, but it's nice and if you get the chance hit up a tour guide for the stories surrounding it.

A traditional, old Catholic church, in the heart of downtown. They still hold services and have prayer candles available to light.

Beautiful old mission / church. As we visited SJD last time before the hurricane Odel (April '14), we enjoyed quick visit there near old town square. Hope it survived the hurricane.

Always love visiting local churches - just to take a moment to reflect on the wonderful time I am experiencing. Quaint, simple, moment of solitude

It screams history as soon as you walk in. And, when you do walk in, the reverence takes over! Must see for all people of faith

A must see, a very special place. Take time to read the plaques in the front courtyard. Also go inside and appreciate the relics and art.

This is a beautiful church. I was very self conscious being taken to this church as part of a tour. If even just 8 tourists go inside they would be taking over the space. Inside were devout worshipers being distracted and interrupted. I left quickly.

I had read about the church prior to travel and knew they had an bilingual service at noon on Sundays so we attended mass. The church is just beautiful and the way it is situated in the center of the town square was just as I imagined a traditional Mexican city should be. The church is not air conditioned so... More

We stopped at this church as part of a tour of San Jose. We knew nothing of the church but walked away in awe. The church is absolutely beautiful. What is stands for and its history is inspiring. Even if you do not do a tour I highly recommend you stop here to see this beautiful landmark.
