Clean and orderly, a beautiful church. But no stations of the cross! First time in a Catholic church/mission where they weren't present. Well worth a visit which offered a quiet moment to pray for peace in this crazy world

You can't miss the misione. The town is small and this, I think, is the highest structure in town. It has an interesting history, and if you know anything about the mission system that was built to go up the Pacific Coast into the US you might like to see this most southern part of the system.

Located in Todos Santos, it was a stop on our visit. It is nice from the outside as well as the inside. It has a lot of history, part of the Missions in Mexico and California, that came to impose Catholicism on the local pagans.

Not a big fan of church buildings myself but I've gotta admit this one is always looking great. Inside and outside. Worth getting to know it, it has a huge terrace outside with a nice view to the south side of the town and lots of palm trees.

Mission church established in 1700s. Important part of Mexican, Baja history. Easy to get to. Across from plaza. Excellent example of an early mission.

Four of us went to Todos Santos (one had not been there before), so one of our first stops was the Mission Church -- next to the open lot that was filled with local artesanos. The first-timer was really impressed and she wanted some photos to take back home to show her congregation. It was quiet inside (until a ship... More

The front part of the Church, now a vestibule/chapel, IS the original Mission. The expanded Church is perpendicular to it and obviously newer. Confessions are heard at 6 p.m. on Thursdays, in the original Mission. You line up for Confession by sitting on the left (Marian) side of pews, and people kind of move forward in the pews to have...

We went in on Christmas Eve . The Nativity scene was lovely . The building has been restored , but it still has the character of the early Mission . It is lovely and serene , we said a Christmas prayer .

if you are in town, drop in. It is a nice church, but don't expect a historical mission as it is completely refurbished.
