Was here for the funeral of a friend of many years. All buildings are restored, but look so authentic. Grounds/buildings/ambience is, minus the asphalt & cement, what Californianos had as a social center in an undeveloped plain

Wonderful part of California history, with displays and a museum to bring it all to life. A peaceful place to sit in the shade and relieve big city nervous tension--let it all hang out and be one with the universe.

I love historic sites and this one delivered. Very low key and made me feel like it was 200 years ago.

We were staying in Burbank and didn't want to have to drive a couple of hours to see a "California Mission". So, we chose San Fernando as it was only a 15 minute drive from our hotel. It gave us a feel for what a California Mission is, as well as was close by to a cemetery with several celebrity graves. The Mission itself has a beautifully be-fitting memorial park in the back to Bob Hope -- it's also where he is buried.

Southern California and LA have a rich history that is intertwined with the Spanish exploration of America and the Mission system. San Fernando is one of the better re-made facilities that gives a great peak into life in LA in the 1800's
