Pictures of the "Mission Nuestra Senora de Loreto"

In our latest trip in May 2007, I took a few pictures of the "Mission Nuestra Senora de Loreto".

Mission Nuestra Senora de Loreto - founded over 300 years ago

Mission Loreto was founded on October 25, 1697 at the Monqui settlement of Conchó in the present city of Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Established by the Jesuit missionary Juan María de Salvatierra, this earliest successful mission in Baja California is sometimes considered "head and mother of all the Spanish missions in Upper and Lower California.

In this trip I took 22 pictures of the Mission, its museum and the gift shops and streets around it. Click here to view these pictures (will open in another browser window).
