2) Misión de Santa Rosalía de Mulegé

Mulegé is 140 km north of Loreto. It is one of the prettiest towns and oasis in Baja California Sur. The village is situated between two hills in a valley provided with life by a stream that runs until it joins the estuary which flows to the sea; edged by huge palm trees, orchards and fences where bougainvilleas of all colors tangle.
 Mission Santa Rosalía de Mulegé was founded in 1705 by the Jesuit missionary Juan Manuel de Basaldúa at a Rancheria of the local Cochimí which was known as Mulegé.  The site lies near the entrance of Bahía de Concepción, on the Gulf of California coast.
