The grounds of the mission is great and we enjoyed seeing Bob Hope's Memorial. The brook, trees and vegetation was wonderfully maintained. Inside was also nice but it would have been great if there was more information about some of the artifacts. There was a wedding getting ready to start too so that buzz had a nice feel. The church...

Our group is on a mission tour of seven areas and this site is one of the most extensive. We set up a guided tour and planned Mass in the church. Amazing grounds at the Mission and across the street. Our guide was very knowledgeable but not quite flexible enough to match the needs of a limited to one hour... More

It was a surprise to see how well kept this mission is. My daughter and I went there last month. It was a short visit. There were a few visitors which is great... Loved their gift shop, I think they have better selection of items compared to others. We also liked the Bob Hope Memorial Garden, love the flowers and... More

On our way home from a trip down the coast we decided to stop at the San Fernando Mission.What a beautiful mission ! It is probably one of the best preserved missions that I've seen in California. There are many buildings with lots of exhibits. It was very peaceful here. Hardly any visitors. There is a beautiful garden where Bob... More

As I travel California, I'm planning to finally stop at every mission. I only have a handful left. I don't believe this to be one of the prettier missions (San Luis Ray, Santa Barbara, Carmel and Santa Clara are all nicer). It's not the most historically interesting (I like San Juan Bautista for that). As for iconic, not much tops... More

Wonderful grounds and history to understand the purpose and function of a mission in teaching religion, skills and vocations of all types. Great self guided tour and display items of historical backgrounds. Also, burial site of Bob Hope.

These California missions are just beautiful! The architecture and surrounding gardens are a credit to the folks who maintain them. The museum, chapel and gardens in this one are just wonderful. We arrived about an hour before closing and really needed more time. I hope to return and spend at least a half day here. A very minimal fee to... More

Stucco and adobe, beautiful arches and architectures; this mission is beautiful. The church altar is stunning. Take your time to explore it. You won't be sorry.

We had an opportunity to visit one of the many California missions today. This was part of a school project for my grandson. Since I live in SoCal, I have already visited many of the other missions but not this one. Much of the style is the same but there were enough unique differences that I would highly recommend a...

Every year our family would visit a mission. This year, we decided to visit San Fernando Mission. A food half hour drive dr where we live. The ground are quite wide compared to some that we've before. The museum is worth a visit because of different items in display. I personally like the china collections. Not a lot of people... More
