Very nice place to visit. Mission is actually in use. Lots of tourists and tour guides. At least when we were there.

Whenever we visit San Jose, we make it a point to attend the 7:30p Saturday night Mass. Even though it is in Spanish, we understand enough to have a truly wonderful worship experience. We always feel welcome by the local residents. The church is beautiful, reminiscent of a simpler time.

This historic building is a beautiful well maintained catholic church. During our visit, the church was filled to capacity with hymns being sung in the Spanish.

In a community where vendors call out constantly enticing one to buy, here one could consider less material things in a quiet restful setting. The open windows... More

We had a company dinner here in front of the church with a full on mariachi band and churros. It was awesome. We even did our own Harlem Shake video with the assistance of the band. It was fun to be there where the Hills stars eloped (Heidi and Spencer?).

A beautiful example of a Spanish Style Mission Church. The simplicity of the design is beautiful in and of itself. everything was designed to have religious significance for the working men and women of the area. There are areas of the Church in need of some repair, and a donation box for that purpose is on display. I'm sure every... More

Went to mass on Sunday. Mostly in Spanish and small amount of English. Get there a little early to get a seat. Nice old church and very basic and simple

Very old church with character. Peaceful place inside and out. Nice to sit outside in the sun and ponder.
