It was ok . There are some nice things to see but other things in the area that are much better things to see . Would not have been a big deal to miss not seeing it for me.

We paid $5 for the entrance. The souvenir shop selling good stuff. We took lots of photo during the tour. I was amazed by the interior of the mission

You feel very cool and calm when you are around it. Loved to stay there for half an hour. Overall village is very serene and picturesque. Nice coffee and great bakery items..

Enter through the gift shop. $5 charge. Interesting pictures a few artifacts a beautiful old style church, peaceful garden . unfortunately the adjacent cemetery is in terrible shape. Not worth trying to read the headstone.

The grounds are stunning! Do take a stroll and enjoy the views. However, we witnessed a very unfortunate interaction between the gift store staff and some guests ahead of us who were interested in seeing the sanctuary. A fee was necessary to access the sanctuary...More

Peaceful and well maintained mission. It's smaller and less informative than mission San Jose but definitely worth a drop in, if you're in Solvang. The staff gave us helpful instructions and a map for the self-guided tour. The gardens are pretty and a good place...More

I would say about one mile to center of the town of Solvang.
Is the mission wheelchair accessible?

i'm not sure. In the areas we went it was ground floor or pathways and the doors were wide enough. My suggestion would be to call and check to know for sure though.
