Catholic Church in Cabo San Lucas for  Spanish and bi-lingual masses.


This church was constructed in 1730 by a Spanish missionary. Renovations have been done over the years but the structure is rather simple. It is a tribute to the local history because little has changed in its appearance since the original construction. There is no air conditioning, only ceiling fans for cooling. It can be quite warm in the summer.
