Mision Santa Rosalia de Mulegé is just upstream from the bridge that carries Highway 1 across the river. Founded in 1706, the mission was completed in 1766. The mission has been restored with the help of the government and functions as a Catholic church. It originally served an Indian population of some 2000 persons. Nearby, rocky steps lead up a hill that affords a bird's-eye view over the oasis. Walk to the vista point on top of a point of rock located a 100 feet from behind the mission. From here you can look over a sea of palm trees, a reservoir, and the agricultural area upstream from Mulege. To reach the mission from town, follow Calle Zaragosa (the longest north-south street in Mulege) south, cross the river on a small bridge under the elevated highway bridge, turn sharply back to the right and follow a dirt road, first through palm groves then up a barren grade to the mission (the towers of the church can be seen while crossing the elevated Hwy.1 bridge and from the high-way as you enter the town from the north).
