  • San Gabriel Mission, like nearly all the missions, is absolutely gorgeous. The courtyard area is wonderfully landscaped and it is a fantastic place to take photos. It is amazing to see California history kept in such lovely state. Everyone I encountered who worked there was phenomenal. I'd highly recommend anyone in the area to visit a local mission. You get a sense of what California was like long ago, before the hustle and bustle of the big city.
  • I have been visiting all the old California missions. This is the 18th one of the 21 that I have visited. Nice people here. This is rather small, but it is still quite nice. $5 to go on the self-guided tour. The church is nice with it's stained glass window that give the church a green tint. Very nice grounds with lots of cactus plants. Nice exhibits. Good for less than an hour, but not to be missed. I like the bell tower.
