Fray Junipero Serra's Missions. Humanity Heritage Site Unesco 2003


Discover the Missions in Sierra Gorda built in the 18Th century by Indians guided by the Franciscan Missionaries.

Sierra Gorda is an amazing natural area declared as Biosphere Reservation due to the variety of animal and plants it has.

The Franciscan missions were declared as World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003. While you are learning about the evangelizing process you will see the beautiful baroque style facades carved in stone.

You'll also see rivers, waterfalls, springs, sorrounded by an extraordinarie panorama.

A Recent Review of this tour

Aaron put together a trip for myself and three friends to the Sierra Gorda in Feb 2017. We were all delighted with the trip. He is very knowledgeable and was flexible in accommodating our needs and interests. He provided a comfortable car and handled the large amount of driving. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
