we walked through about 7 rooms and read about the history. At the end there is a nicely done video. Gift shop is stocked well with nice mementos at various price ranges. Cemetery is a peaceful end to the visit to this Mission.

Nice old mission in the area. Still used as a church so there were people inside praying and doing their candle thing. Gift shop is all religious items. Catholics will appreciate this more than just tourist types.

It had a little cafe! More of that in a mo. Nice Mission, and we saw 15/21 this trip, Good museum with good lighting, some of them have been so dark. Largish church, quite simple . Good restored buildings a lot of which are now used as a retreat, which did restrict access to some of the grounds. It has the oldest pepper tree and nice garden area but you could only view it from behind the fence. Yes, it had a little coffee shop, fairly certain the only one that did. A few tables inside and a couple outside over looking the garden. Coffee served in paper cups though and limited snacks available, but was welcome non the less.
