There is so much history in this old historic building. AND, they still have church services there.
Also, culteral events, (one time a flutest and opera singer played there).
There is a great viewpoint just to the left, facing the mission, up high. There is a memorial too.
Great view of the town, and the river, with many palms.
The Mission is very old and full of history. Locals have a deep regard for their Mission and the connection it has with the community around it. When the bells chime, they can be heard up and down the river basin. Well worth the stop in a living museum to the past going forward to the future.
What a beautiful place. I wish there was someone to guide you through your visit. It's completely isolated and if you don't know your way around, you could get lost. It's also important to mention that there is no one there to tell you about the history and importance of this church, which is quite interesting.
The mission is on a hill, overlooking the town. Yes, mass is still held there.
There is a viewpoint up the hill to the left of the mission, that gives a great view of the town, the river and lots of palm trees.
The mission is still in very good repair for how old it is. I don't remember exactly,...
