Church
Visit San Jose del Cabo Church, an attractive and storied place of worship in the historical center of town. The first incarnation of the church was founded in 1734 by Jesuitical Friar Nicolas Tamaral. Destroyed and damaged during various altercations and natural disasters over the centuries, the church first stood as it appears today in 1840--though again, in 1918, a hurricane caused significant damage to the site. Rebuilt midway into the 20th century, the church today stands as a symbol of the town and witness to local history, with events of great significance linked with the life of the building. Snap pictures of its simple, graceful facade, and note the mosaic depicting the killing of Friar Tamaral during an uprising by the local indigenous population.

  • We walked over to the church from our resort because we wanted to check it out as well as the square and to do some shopping along the way. May as well see it while you're there but nothing particular...  more »
  • Catholic Church, small but very beautiful. Only spent a short time in the Church but got some history about the city.  more »
  • This is a reproduction of a church that was destroyed, but is still old and has a lot of history.It is right off the town square and is worth a visit if you are in San Jose de Cabo  more »

  • Quaint, but doesn't compare to the grandiose churches of Europe. A special little spot if you are in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.
  • Rustic church, the color is great, love this places.
  • Pretty from the outside, central location but underwhelming interior
  • Beautiful rustic buildings that takes you back in time
  • An iglecia rustica founded by the first settlers of San Jose del Cabo during the rise of the Catholic evangelisation
