Parroquia San Jose, San Jose del Cabo
Trip Planner: Mexico / Baja California / Baja California Sur / Los Cabos / San Jose del Cabo / Parroquia San Jose
Visit Parroquia San Jose, 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. Put Parroquia San Jose and other San Jose del Cabo attractions into our San Jose del Cabo road trip planning tool , and watch your holiday take shape.

This lovely historical Catholic church is situated in the center of San Jose del Cabo. Great to attend mass on Sunday when you are on vacation. They offer a bilingual mass too. more »
The church is an important part of the life in San Jose fel Cabo. It is a living church. They hold several services in the day. It situated at the main plaza which is a busy place in the evening, especially on Thursdays for Art Walk. The church started as a misdion in early 1700s and was located at this site in the 19th century. It was badly damaged by a Hurricane once and was rebuilt. It is small building and simply furnished. We once stood at the gate during an evening service when the santuary was full. After a prayer, everybody stood up and started shaking hands with people around. That was really nice. The history of the church is written on the tablets on a pillar in the front, out the church.
The art walk takes place in this plaza at 5 pm on Thursday. Lots of vendors in the area and loads of great places for food .
