In 1724 it was renamed Nuestra Señora del Pilar de La Paz. Located across the street to the southwest from the small town plaza, this mission contains the statue of the Virgin of Pilar, which is the focus of 'Todos Santos' main festival in November.During the Mexican American War the Skirmish of Todos Santos, last battle of the war, was fought near the town on March 30, 1848.During the 19th century following the secularization of the missions, Todos Santos thrived as the Baja sugarcane capital, supporting eight sugar mills at the end of the 19th Century.
