  • We have been visiting SLO for many years, and finally took a tour of the Mission. This was time well spend and very informative. The docent was knowledgeable and very pleasant.

  • I love this church and its grounds. Sooo beautiful and peaceful. People are very welcoming. I visit and attend mass each time I visit my family here in San Luis Obispo.
  • The gift shop is to the left of the entrance to the church. There is a museum inside the Mission that is a look at the history and the surrounding area. Starting with displays of the Chumash Indians and their culture, the museum winds through many rooms, with history of the church, and its transformation over the last 240 years. The picture collection of all the adobes around town, I found quite interesting. The Map on the wall in that room showed the ranches from land grants long ago. The displays are that of an old museum, aging, and a fun look into the local history. Cost is by donation.
