Misión de San Bruno de Baja California Sur

This was the first missionary settlement in the Baja California Peninsula.

It was founded in 1683 by the Jesuit fathers Eusebio Francisco Kino, Matías Goñi, and Juan Bautista Copart.

Located about 20 km north of Loreto, it was the first Jesuit enclave because the natives were friendly and helped to build a small chapel and rudimentary houses. Several expeditions departed from here, establishing relations with the peninsula's inhabitants, and Father Kino began to study their languages and customs.

However, due to difficult natural conditions, the crops dried up, and the mission had to be abandoned, despite having converted and baptized 500 natives. Currently, there are hardly any remains left as it was built with non-durable materials, and only stacked stones can be seen.
