The Mission is in pristine condition and the historical panels are extremely informative and well done. The chapel is very nice and the courtyard under the olive trees very peaceful.

This was the 21st and last mission built. I have been visiting these missions for a while now - hoping to visit them all. It is an item on my bucket list. This mission is rather small in comparison to some of the other missions,...More
