Built in 1797 and named in hoot of King Ferdinand III of Spain. Another must see on the "mission trail". Largest free standing adobe in California! Completely restored to its original purposes featuring a covento and workshops. Church altar statue of Saint Ferdinand imported from Spain 300 years ago! Beautiful, peaceful garden with fountain. Surprisingly, Bob Hope and his Wife... More

Beautiful and quaint. The church inside is amazing especially the altar area. Magnificent craftsmanship. The grounds are very well kept. Hidden away here are many religious relics including a piece of the Virgin Mary's veil. Five stars.

The mission and grounds are very well restored and well kept. The museum, artifacts, and history are interesting. The clerk took our fees and said there would be a wedding in the chapel until noon. We took our time visiting the rest of the site but then found the chapel still occupied after 1:00. Back in the gift shop they... More

I've been to other missions and and/or buildings from the 1700s and 1800s, but this is bigger and better than any others I've seen. There are several buildings and two large gardens, plus the Bob Hope Memorial Garden. The buildings have lots of displays and rooms where people lived, with original furnishings. If you are at all interested in the... More

I use to go here as a kid 30 years ago and take tours. Now im bringing my kids, and not much has changed. Good history of the mission with very authentic artifacts. it's worth going at least once.

Great gift shop, although a little pricey. The grounds are not very large and peaceful. There is a church and museum and cemetery. Bob Hope, his wife and sister are buried behind the cemetery (something I did not know about). Overall a nice place to visit.

Stopped here on the way back from the Reagan Presidential Library. Enjoyed the early Spanish California artifacts immensely. The church is lovely. The Memorial Garden where Bob Hope and his wife are buried was beautiful. Nice gift shop.

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
