  • This mission is a bit out of the way but definitely worth the drive. We were able to visit Mission San Miguel, then drive to this Mission San Antonio de Padua and end in Mission Soledad in one day...

  • My wife loves visiting these missions. (And it was on the way to Lake San Antonio!) Beautiful drive coming in from King City. Sunday, early afternoon, only a few visitors. Actually enjoyed it...

  • This mission is out of the way, but definitely worth a visit. The museum is large and the grounds are beautiful. You pass through an active military base (no check in required) and keep going 1/4 mile past what looks like a replica of a mission. That was William Randolph Hearst's hotel that is on the base. Contact the mission in advance, the mission rents rooms. They say they are a retreat not a hotel. Would love to stay here next time we visit.
  • Redone and beautiful. Take a tour. It's worth it. Go through the museum, enjoy the garden, because minus the fountain, 27 of the plants are of the Salinian tribes original species of plants.
