  • 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.
