Owner description: A beautiful and mysterious 18th-centry church at the bottom of Mexico's Copper Canyon.

The inside of the church isn't that interesting but the setting is lovely. The colors are vibrant. The prettiest part of Batopilas.

My wife and I, with a small group of fellow travelers, hiked part way and rode by SUV part way from Batopilas. Gorgeous scenery en route. This fascinating neo-Gothic mission church dates back to the 17th century and has been restored. At the left is a glass coffin-like case with a figure of the crucified Christ, complete with stigmata. In the brick floor, look for rectangular patterns that reveal the burials of priests below the church, and also the sub-floor grave of Martina V. de Ontiveros (1881), presumably a patroness of the church. Admission is free, but a donation is appreciated.

Easy enough walk from Batopilas, it's downriver along the road which isn't flat, but gradual. I didn't expect to find anything in Satevo but there's a small community including tiendas for cookies or water. The church was locked when we got there but a little boy ran after us and a woman came out to open the door and give a brief tour, and we gave her a donation.

This place has been restored poorly and I'll maintained. Nonetheless, it is a must see in Batopilas if not for anything but the age and history of the place.

This one is newer and better maintained than some, other than that it's the same old - same old from one village to another. You really have to love missions - and be able to look past what the Spanish and their religious fervor did to the indigenous culture and people in order to get all these missions. Still it is a part of history I guess.
