“Don't miss the Mission in Downtown SLO”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Authentic & beautiful, right in the heart of downtown but easily missed if you don't get off Higuera St. Do visit their museum and gift shop, but it is easily missed too, if you don't go through the main church doors and out the side door into the interior courtyard.
