This is a must see in Mission. Unique cathedral run by the Benedictine monks. For a sweeping view of the valley take the short walk out to the lookout. Just follow the gravel path. You can also reserve accomodation here with breakfast.

This is a beautiful location, well worth a visit. the Abbey itself is fascinating, and the property is beautiful. Take the walk down to the edge of the cliff and look at how the Fraser Valley came to be!

This is a must see breath taking view and amazing history at the abby. You can also start at the bottom of heritage park and follow the trails to the monastery it's an amazing hike with breathtaking reward. The only thing is there are no dogs allowed.

Took my visiting family to see the Abby, must say it was beautiful. The garden well kept, the chapel was extraordinary and the senior monk, if I can say that was so very friendly and informative. A must see, especially the spectacular view of Mission from the top of the hill, don't miss that part.! Just make sure if you... More

Years ago I went there as part of a retreat. Spent the whole day there! Very historical. We had lunch there! Extremely memorable.

If visiting Mission this is the place to go for a beautiful overall view of Mission & the Fraser River. It's just a short, easy walk to access the view. The Abbey is also a quiet, peaceful place to visit and worth taking 1/2 hour of your time to see.

Follow the path to the lookout , sit on the bench ( if someone hasn't beat you there)and enjoy the beautiful view of the river and the valley. You could sit here for a long time as it is a great spot to ponder life or anything else, a very peaceful place.

The Abbey Church is spectacular. Awesome stained glass and bas-relief images. But the walk - around the grounds and along the bluff, overlooking the Fraser River, that is the best! Stay for Vespers if your can.

This is a lovely quiet peaceful place with a modern chapel that has coloured glass windows, arranged to go with the time of day sun hits them. Nice walk to view point over Fraser river. Gardens were a bit weather battered, as it was end September.

The place fills you with reverential awe. A must visit if you are in the area. The gardens are beautiful and the art in the abbey is inspiring. The stained windows are colored according to the seasons.
