Reviewed October 4, 2012

This mission is beautiful and a definite must visit location. Just looking at the enormous fig tree on the grounds was worth the trip.

“A Relaxing Day at The Mission”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

To experience The Mission, you really must take your time to smell the roses, on the Mission property as well as across the street in the park. The Mission is filled with wonderful historical displays and provides you with an appreciation of the historical significance. This visit is not overwhelming but simply a historical and memorable experience.
