Beyond the beaches and bars Cabo San Lucas is so famous for, the resort town still has a historic heart. Iglesia Catolica de San Lucas is Cabo's main Catholic Church, dating back to Spanish missionaries of the mid-1700s.
The simple, traditional church is one of the oldest buildings in Cabo San Lucas – little has changed since its construction in 1730. For churchgoers, visiting the Iglesia Catolica de San Lucas offers a unique opportunity to meet the locals and get to know their culture.
Iglesia Catolica de San Lucas is a short walk from Plaza Amelia Wilkes, the main town square. It's a relatively sparten place with little more than a gazebo and topiary, but the quaint buildings surrounding are in the process of gentrification, becoming wine bars and restaurants.
This colourful neighbouhood is worth exploring and strikes a great contrast to the more 'touristy' areas closer to Cabos San Lucas' marina. One visitors describes it as a "quiet little island in the middle of the madness that is Los Cabos".
The iglesia (church) is open to visitors daily from 09:00 to 18:00, with mass services on Sundays at 08:30, 12:00 and 19:00, and Saturdays at 19:00. Entry is free but donations are appreciated.
