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!

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!

Interesting history, and you can take the climb up the tower which puts you at a level with the flocks of birds that wheel around the town looking for roadkill. From that vista, you get a full appreciation of the river's course, and the greenness and fertility that it brings to the valley amidst the surrounding desert. It's great to... More

Great mission, not as pretty as some but in a very nice location with a great view. Well worth the time to stop in and check it out. Don't miss the stairs near the back of the mission that lead down to a pretty overlook. Simply gorgeous!
