“Lovely and Holy”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is a very serene blessed place. It is a lovely mission. It was so peaceful. We felt so spiritual there. It really is a wonderful piece of our history.

“Another on on the trail”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Well worth it to go to each one, very close together and lots of history. Kind of sad as to how the native indians were forced out of their lifestyle, but good to learn about it.

“Really beautiful....”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We couldn't go in because they were having a church service at the time of our visit so we appreciated the outside architecture. It's a really beautiful church. On the day of our visit, there were lots of weird people in the parking lot and lots of law enforcement around---we think it was because of the flooding that happened the night before and they were trying to get people to keep from trying to go down flood ridden roads.

“A little slice of history”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

A tiny little reconstructed mission, in rural setting. Gave you a feeling of the way it might have looked. Don't miss the little museum!
