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

The San Ignacio Mission is one of the better preserved of the many built in the 1700-1800 in Mexico. While not as grand in size as the compound in San Javier it none the less appears to be maintained much better as there is a working town around it to tend to the constant maintenance. The village is only a... More

The Town Square and Mission in old San Ignacio are beautiful. Highly recommend walking around town and maybe stopping to get a Mexican ice cream or paleta!!

We were lucky enough to be there when a curator opened a section not normally accessible to the public. There was an old museum and a crumbling stairs climb up to the roof with a great view. The gardens are lovely and the atmosphere is serene. If you are in the area make sure you visiit.

I love all of the churches and missions in the Baja. This one is a don't miss - so much history and beautiful courtyard. It seems that every church/mission we visit always has someone (usually a woman) sweeping the floors and this one was no exception. We spoke briefly with her and bought a couple of rosaries that were handmade... More

One of the oldest Missions in Baja. It definitely is the main attraction in San Ignacio. Worth your time going through the mission and the grounds.

You can just walk into the Mission and walk around inside. They also have a beautiful garden in their courtyard! No evidence of damage from the hurricane that hit there back in early 2014. It's a GORGEOUS church, worth seeing!

We enjoyed a beautiful side trip to San Ignacio while on our 10 day overlanding trip on the Baja and Baja Sur. San Ignacio is a quiet little village with a beautiful Mission on the main square. The gardens surrounding the Mission are very lush and a treat to walk through.

Lovely gardens, this is in a very quiet little town. Bring Mexican money. We had to buy something to get change from one place to pay for bathroom access with pesos.
