This dates back to the 1700s and is worth seeing. It is still a working church so you can attend mass there on Sunday or just wander in to the see the construction.

There was a service going on when I visited. It's an amazing historical church. Enjoyed just looking at the walls and statues.

This is a grand church. It is large and surrounded by a little park where children play and people meet and greet each other. Around the church are art galleries, restaurants and one or two very fine tobacco (cigar) shops. This is the landmark you use when your group separates, because you can see it at night.

Overall, I wasn't all that interested in San Jose as an excursion due to all the stores, but little other cultural spots. However, the Mission Church was a pretty neat site. Although it is not the original building, as the placards say, it sits on the site where Christian missionaries built a house of worship for the converted local population.... More
