San Jose del Cabo Church (Parroquia San José)
Those interested in the history of San Jose del Cabo Church can tour the church to learn about the destruction that took place during a major hurricane in the early 1900s (the rebuilding of the church was not completed until 1940) and see what remains of the original walls, mosaics, and facade. Worshippers and visitors can also attend Mass services, which take place daily.
