There are 21Spanish missions on California that are more than 200 years old. The results for the indigenous people were generally disastrous, but this is a story we all need to know and understand. I particularly like this one because you can get more of the feel for what it was like in the early days. It is just a few miles off HWY 101 and easy to find. Great place to take kids. We were with a nine and twelve year old and they enjoyed their visit. Both had visited other missions and one had visited this one before. Highly recommend it for the history. BONUS, Alfred Hitchcock fans will recognize the location.
