  • The grounds are beautiful to walk around and learn all the history about this mission. Everything is well kept, you can do a self guided tour, in the museum artifacts from the working mission from long ago are on display. Complete the tour with the church and the cemetery is beautiful and so serene.
  • Beautiful place with a long (by American standards---not so much by colonial Spanish standards or European standards). Anything in the western US that dates to the 18th century is worthy of study. Brought our kids here back over the holidays in 2007 while visiting the in-laws. I also enjoyed the US/Mexico War connection.
