“Plain...kinda boring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

I know, I know --- it's a church not Disneyland but I thought it was just plain and quaint. Nothing to write home about. I have been to some spectacular churches and missions in my travels and just felt blah about this one. Don't strike me down but if you miss it - no biggie.

“Worth a look inside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

The Misione de Nuestra Senora de Pilar is a beautiful, well preserved mission church. It won't take much of your time to see the church, so stop by and have a look inside. The stained glass windows and the simple decorations are very beautiful.

“Famous Mission of rock legend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2012

Yes, this is the mission that is mentioned in the famous Eagle's song, Hotel California. As a matter of fact, the hotel and restaurant are just down the block from the mission, and I'm sure you could "hear the mission bells" from either. This is a very old but extremely well kept mission, which is still in use today. It has the most beautiful etched glass windows depicting the stations of the cross. Truly a sight to see, plus there is a nice little hidden courtyard to the one side of the mission, which was a nice addition.

Should you ever find youself in Los Santos, make a stop here. It will be well worth your time.

“A must see on the plaza and for Todos Santos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2010

While the interior may seem bland to some - consider this mission's age and standing within the community and symbolically it's above all other structures. Well taken care of and I've been there for Mass before - all are welcome whether native or tourist.
