Lonely Planet review

The Misión Nuestra Señora de Loreto, dating from 1697, was the first permanent mission in the Californias and the base for the expansion of Jesuit missions up and down the Baja peninsula. Alongside the church, INAH’s revamped Museo de las Misiones chronicles the settlement of Baja California.
