I took out of town guests to the Mission. It had been many years since I visited the site. I was stunned at the beauty of the old church after the restoration work. ALso, a very helpful nun gave me some information about the church and I even stood in line to get a close look at St. Francis statue. Unfortunately I only saw the museum and video of the restoration of the church after I visited the church. When I tried to go back inside there was a Mass in progress. I was disappointed I was not able to see the church again looking for the details I learned in the video. So, I would higly recommend that a visit start with the museum and video about the restoration as it would enhance the visit to the church itself. The grounds are also interesting with all the different cactus.The gift shop had nice items at a fairly reasonable price.
