Photographer's Note

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.
