The mission of San Ignacio is located near an oasis, which was discovered by Jesuit missionaries in 1716 in the Baja California peninsula. Its construction was initiated in 1738 by the Jesuits and was finished in 1786 by the Dominicans, due to which the Jesuits were expelled from New Spain (Mexico) in 1767.

Una composicion esplendida, gran recuerdo de la epoca colonial, la fachada es muy bella y la has captado en todo su plenitud, en un bonito dia de sol, los arboles y arbustos con flores, adornan mucho el POV captado.
Muy buena nitidez que nos permite recrearnos en los detalles, la luz está muy bien gestionada.
Un bonito colorido muy natural.
Buena tarde de domingo.
Mis mejores deseos.

lovely mission. I like it nece architecture. It reminds me about the missions which I had a pleasure to see in California, like St Barbara or otehrs.
It is pity that there are these cables in here but it is not your fault. I would consider cutting the left side of the frame may be even turning it into a square frame to focus more on the church. Great well saturated colors,
Very well done,

A lovely crisp shot and I find this architecture interesting. The nice blue sky and the spot on exposure really helped to bring out the beauty of this building. Great shot!!
