  • The architecture and grounds make this mission a beautiful site to visit and spend time.... wander, find quiet time, enjoy the peace if the mission. Attend mass and perhaps one if the summer concerts ...  more »
  • Great place to visit. I came with my family we all enjoyed the views and history. You cant see the whole mission due to the fact that they have seminars and school going on at all times.  more »

  • Nice place to look around. The grounds were beautiful, and I have never seen a pepper tree before. We noticed that there were several little lizards running around in the gated area containing the oldest pepper tree in California. The graveyard on the east side was lovely and very tranquil.
  • This was a beautiful peaceful place to learn about the history of this Franciscan Mission dedicated to St. Louis. You can tour the church and learn about it with an excellent tour guide. The interior is painted with designs from the inidigenous people. There is a nice museum off the gift shop for a nominal fee. You may enter the interior courtyards, but the large one is for those attending retreats. The church graveyard is adjacent to the beautiful mission church. Lovely peaceful place. Rest rooms on site.
