My wife would love to pray in this old mission

A definite stop along the way to watching whales. It has some very unique interior designs and a rose garden on the side.

Hard to believe that the padres were able to build this impressive edifice in the 1700s and that it is so beautifully maintained to this day. Worth a visit for sure!

Old mission in center of town. Very pleasant surrounding and just what a person would expect in a quiet and friendly place. The mission is stunning with a lot of charm. Mass and special events seem to be always going on there.

The mission was really beautiful! Coming from California, i have seen my share of missions. What is great about this one is its place in history as one of the very first. The main building is well maintained and is wonderful to photograph and is easily accessible. The ability to see the structure from all sides and inside as well,... More

Worth a quick stop if in San Ignacio, especially given how convenient--right on the plaza square. The building oozes 18th century.

This is an amazing accomplishment in this remote part of Baja California. The structure is at least three stories high, hand built, and has withstood hundreds of years of earthquakes and hurricanes. The interior of the mission has display boards telling the story of the mission's construction and founders. Outside on the South side of the mission is a wonderful... More

We enjoy looking round churches, cathedrals, chapels and missions when on holiday. This one is well maintained, and sits at a prime position on the little town square. It's not worth making a special trip but have a look in for 10 minutes or so if you're passing through town.

My husband wanted to stay an extra day in San Ignacio to visit the mission. I'm not sure it was worth the extra day. Once you see the mission there is literally nothing else to do in the town. We were in between the whale watching tour at Kuyima. Overall, we had a pretty nice experience. The mission is well-maintained... More

Stunning exterior, amazing interior, with intelligent maintenance enhancing the construction and age. The massive old paintings are very impressive. Grounds are well maintained.

I had a good time over there, but could not get many people to help me around. Everything was closed and couldn't do much. I did enjoy coffee and a nice date pie.
