If you are passing through San Ignacio you definitely want to stop to see the historic mission in the center of town. Built in the early 18th century it has classic mission architecture and informative interpretative panels in both English and Spanish. We were there...More

Great place, very well conserved. Amazing how they build this place in that time with only stones an local materials and it has stood the test of time. Very well worth the visit to learn more about baja Missions an Father Kino "adventures"

Beautiful mission in an amazing little town. This felt like real Mexico! Quaint town with shops, outdoor Plaza, and hat stands. The mission is one of the oldest around and very much worth a visit.

Don't settle to see just the outside of the Mission. Step inside and be transported to an era of beauty and conquest. The omnipotent power of the Catholic Church prevails as it conquers the native spirit. The magnificent towering structure blocks the beauty of the...More

The mission itself is nothing special, however the facade is amazing and worth a close look. Be sure to be there during the morning when the sun shines on the facade
