We've been coming here for years to visit family in the area. This church has a great story and is a sense of local pride for many of the townspeople. Worth a visit if you are passing by or near Puerto Penasco.

Just south of the heart of Caborca on the banks of a dry river bed that once took our nearly half of the mission sits the Historic Padre Kino Caborca Mission building. Superb architecture, beautiful grounds, and a must see for anyone in the Puerto Penasco/Caborca region of Sonora.
