Many people do not know that this is the last Spanish Mission in California and the northern extent of the Spanish (and Mexican) rule.

The last of the missions on the Camino Real. This is where California became part of the USA. I wonder how many people know the history of expansionism in the US? A must visit, beautiful!

We've been to severak of the CA missions and really enjoy seeing that part of history. This one requires a lot of imagination. Only 3 rooms still stand.

The Mission in Sonoma is most Northern Mission of the 21 Missions on El Camino Real ... starting all the way in the south at San Diego. It is nice and historically interesting to see those missions when travelling in California ... major cities such as San Diego, Los Angeles, San Jose and San Francisco were named after them, and are still connected by El Camino (now often coinciding with Highway 101 or other highways, and with Mission Street in San Francisco). In Sonoma religious volunteers are quite happy to tell you more about their Mission and there are nice displays in the museum. Also the Chapel is still intact and in use. Worthwhile of a short visit when in the wine country!…

As the furthest north mission is just off Sonoma’s plaza, we elected to see the mission. It was educational and interesting way to learn about the history. A nice way to spend an hour so close to the plaza.
