“Nice stop outside Paso Robles”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We're visiting all the missions and this was our 7th stop. It's a beautiful church and looks like something out of an old western. The painting inside the church is beautiful and every design is explained. A really nice mission.

“Very nice mission”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

San Miguel is a very small town and this mission is the center piece. If you are in the area be sure to stop. You can see it from the 101 HY and the off ramp is right at the mission.

“Peacefullness”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

I went there just to find a place for quiet time and a place to pray and be quiet. The oldness of the building and surrounding items helps to bring you close to God and the angels that hang in the walls.

“One of the best of the old missions”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This mission is worth visiting! The great courtyard the interior paintings and the interior great square are all well preserved and very much in the spirit of the early days of the mission.

Take the time, an enjoy the atmosphere.

“Mission Trip”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

My wife and I visited the Mission San Miguel Arcangel to see it in person. My son had to make a model of it when he was in the 6th grade, but we had never got around to see it and he is now 25, so thought we would go. It is unbelievable the a mission founded in 1797 is still stand and in operation today. It give you an insight in what it was like 216 years ago. The way the structure was built. The outdoor ovens, carts, cannon, olive press, mill and fountain.

It was well worth seeing. Now I am more interested in seeing more of the missions of California.
