Cabañas La Pasión De Chilla', a new camping facility at a Jesuit mission site! More photos from the campground added.


Owner of Rancho La Capilla, Modes Amador, has built cabañas along the running stream below his ranch for tourists and made a Facebook page.

Rancho La Capilla is on the site of Mission Dolores-Chillá, also called La Pasión.

See photos and his page, on Facebook:

Cabañas La Pasión De Chilla'

The mission ruins were photographed in 1950 by Marquis McDonald:



Jack Swords was there in 2002:



In 2017, I was there and met Modes (gave him my book with the above two photos in it):



That hill is very distinct:



On my map, this is the 1741 mission site called La Pasión:




New photos from Modes to share... next

Photos of the camping palapas and surroundings...




View southwest.
The camp is on the left, across the arroyo, as is the mission site. The road below is the road (left) to Santa María de Toris (2 mi) and on to Los Burros, on the coast (25 mi).

Curious name; you know where "Chillá" comes from? I can't find anything that makes sense.


Sure, on page 69 of my book...
or on my web page for the missions at VivaBaja.com.

Chillá was the Native Guaycura name for this location. So, as is tradition with the Jesuits, the local name was added to the mission name.

When the Dolores mission was located near the coast for the first twenty years of its life, it was Los Dolores Apaté. Apaté was the Guaycura name for that location.

Before Dolores moved in 1741, the Chillá location was one of its visitas, called La Pasión. La Pasión de Chillá!

Here is a map of Native place names:

Chiraquí = San Luis Gonzaga; Apaté = Dolores; Chillá = La Pasión (Rancho La Capilla)

Thanks for the info.

Even with the commercial. :lol:


OK, you want a commercial do you?

Foe Sale: The book, now in its 11th printing (2022), is $29.95 and if purchased from www.oldmissions.com will include U.S. shipping and be signed by the author.
The book has received driving direction updates and newer mission photos since it was originally published in 2016. Even with a 20% increase in cost from the printers and increase in postage costs from the post office, I have not raised the price. Baja Nomads have contributed to its contents, too.

You can also find the book in bookstores and gift shops, or order it from Sunbelt Publications of El Cajon, CA as well as from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other websites. No guarantees you will get the newest printing unless you order from OldMissions.com, however. The newest printing has over 70 color photos that were black & white in previous printings. See sample at OldMissions.com




For FREE: See mission details on pages at www.VivaBaja.com

I see water lines running between around camp sites (solar heated?) and the green building looks like it must be a bathroom. Do you know if there is a shower stall in it?

Are there other amenities available, such as food, souvenirs, or supplies for sale?




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

No, I do not. You can ask Modes. He is on Facebook and quick to respond...

Looks like it is not done yet. They haven’t put picnic tables and benches under those palapas.
