What a beautiful place. I wish there was someone to guide you through your visit. It's completely isolated and if you don't know your way around, you could get lost. It's also important to mention that there is no one there to tell you about the history and importance of this church, which is quite interesting.

Small Mission. Small cemetery adjacent. Picturesque. Made for some lovely photos. Easy to get to. Free. No restrooms nearby or open.

The mission is on a hill, overlooking the town. Yes, mass is still held there. There is a viewpoint up the hill to the left of the mission, that gives a great view of the town, the river and lots of palm trees. The mission is still in very good repair for how old it is. I don't remember exactly,... More

This is one of the old missions. It is built out of stone, and overlooking the River Mulege. Definitly take the time to climb to the top of the overlook, great views of the river and palm trees. This is one of those treats that makes you realize how authentic the town of Mulege really is. There is a reverence... More

A short walk from town, this quiet mission on the hill is interesting, as it sits on the Mulege river overlooking the town of the same name. A lazy turtle swam below us as we stood on the overlook. The chapel itself seems like a humble room with simple wooden carved doors and rough-hewn beams. Picturesque, with a sense of... More

This is more about the town of Mulegé than the mission. I was only passing through and didn't have much time so I didn't actually go into the mission. Mulegé is an amazing desert oasis. You drop in to the valley from the deserts to the north and all of the sudden you find yourself in a jungle. The palm... More

In California, children are taught that the San Diego Mission is the first one...WRONG! The first is in nearby Loreto and Mulege's is the second. It is in excellent condition and very picturesque. Check out the local history. Well worth the time!

Open and accessible Saturday morning, This is the 3rd Califorina mission built by the Jesuits in the late 1600's. The sanctuary appreared to be ready for a service -- candles lit, faint smell of incense.

I liked the statues, altar, architecture. It's set on a hillside just outside of Mulege. Interesting that in Mulege the church is named Santa Rosalia, and in the town of Santa Rosalia the main church is named Santa Barbara!
