We visited on a Thursday. It takes a couple of hours to go through the place. It's well worth the $5 charged for adults! Follow the guide sheet they give you. Who knew that Bob Hope is buried there, too? The Archdiocese deserves lots of...More

My nephew got married there at the Mission Church, Very nice setting on a beautiful day. Very interesting history about this fort/mission. One must visit the Bob Hope Memorial Gardens there where Bob and his wife are buried.

This is right near my house and many family members laid to rest nearby. There is a sense of tranquility at this Mission and holds a lot of history. Certainly recommend anyone to visit at least once if in the area.

There are signs pointing you toward this historic building all along the street. The entrance is the one with the sign titled, San Fernando Mission, not the driveway titled Archdiocese. It cost 5 dollars for entry through a gift shop. The builds are beautiful, and...More

If you are into California history and or the California missions up and down the state, this one one of them worth the visit. I've visited this mission twice now and find that it offers a little more then a few of the other missions....More
