“Lovely church”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went here for Easter Mass April 2013. Wonderful! I love history and visiting the CA missions. From the parking lot looking east over the farm fields, you can just imagine what the mission grounds might have looked like back in time. I had visited the museum previously. I don't remember anything in particular or special about this museum, so it must've been typical of so many of the other mission museums.

“Very peaceful visit.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

The San Ynez Mission as at the end of the main street of Solvang and easy to walk to and add to your visit. Cost to enter is $5.00. It's a quiet beautiful Mission to explore.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The church itself is beautiful and so is the artwork inside of it. There is also a small museum with an "audio" tour. There is a small fee - $5 per person (kids under 12 are free.) The garden area is very beautiful and peaceful.

“Beautiful Old Mission”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This mission is not one of the larger missions of old California,and it is located not far from the center of Solvang town center.However there was a quaintness and peaceful beauty about it's location that could surround anyone needing solace.
They offer a daily Mass in the mission,and house a cloister of sisters with the most modern and practical uniform (habits) for this century.
