  • A meeting with the past, beginnings of the Christian Catholic Foundation in California, can be known many missions along the California coast.

  • One of the best! If you go for Mass, or just walking around, it's a beauty. Gift shop has nice Crosses.  more »

  • Where do I begin? This mission is beautiful tons of history including with my indigenous ancestors. The ladies in the gift shop are very friendly and super sweet. Lots of relics and religious artifacts to look at and buy as well. Wish they had the painting of the last supper to be visible loved the whole fact that when the mission was burned the members of the painting that was only affected was Judas face which had been burned off fun fact*). Its located in the room with the paintings stored in the exhibit who ever goes and check it out. Very relaxing and peaceful. The older cathedral is a nice place to worship. The cemetery is open from the morning till dusk. I highly recommend this place to those who want to explore and see what life was like. Research research research
  • Early morning hours when the sun is hitting the mission is the best time to visit. Plenty of close parking. The buildings face east and become bathed in the morning light. The markers are neat and architecture magnificent. The mission is a working Catholic school so watch out for parents and kids dropping off and picking up at those times of day.
