  • This is the first Christian mission founded to evangelize the local people. Not at home they killed the priests and razed everything in just a few years. The current mission is rebuilt after the attack, provided by defensive walls. The cost is $5 for adults, the inside not very inspiring, there is a garden, a patio area, a mini Museum, and some statues of Saints--that's all. The façade is very characteristic and is the real highlight of the visit.
