This is an amazing tranquil place to visit. As you walk along the paths back among the trees you can feel the calm come over you. Such beauty...so well kept...the birds and other scenery is such a backdrop to the cross. I would recommend this as a place to take a moment to take a breath and enjoy the day!

This is a quite beautiful place to look around. There is a small chapel on site as well as a gift shop. This is an active church as nuns and priests were walking around too.

We went here on a whim. Though a hot day we enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the mission. The gift shop on the grounds provides a cool respite on hot days.
