Loreto, the oldest town in Baja California Sur, is surrounded by the incomparable scenery of the la Giganta mountain range, the desert and the Sea of Cortez. Nature was generous with Loreto; the intense blues of the sea, contrast with the greens of the palm groves, and the violets of the islands. The desert, with its cacti and muted tones contrasts with the dramatic amphitheater formed by the brilliant colors of the imposing steep rocks of the Sierra de la Giganta.
