It was interesting and beautiful but not an ahhhhh, as many other churches and cathedrals I have seen. Glad I saw it, but most likely once will be... More

The Mission is a short stop on your trip through the Mission mountains but well worth the stop. The beautiful frescos in the chapel are a wonder.

The frescoes alone are worth the stop! But don't miss all the rest - this place is packed with historical information and interest. Plan to spend more than a few minutes and even the kids will remember this one.

I had heard and read about St. Ignatius Mission and after seeing tourist sign made the stop on the way to Flathead Lake. Beautiful church with and outdoor museum and buildings to recreate the original setting. Interior of church is beautiful and worth a peaceful moment.

This beautiful simple little church is a work of art inside. The frescos are all over the walls and the light streaming through the stained glass make this a peaceful stop. I recommend it for everyone.

Saw a little write up in the AAA travel book and we stopped in here after going thru the Natl Bison Refuge. It is close by. I was in awe of all the frescos and could not believe this man had no professional training.. Each was breathtaking.

The inside of the old mission church is covered with frescos painted by Brother Joseph Carignano, who had no professional training in art and decorated the church in between working as the cook and handyman.
