I found the Mission to be inspiring when one understands the history of the California Missions. It is an island on an oasis of the modern life and should provide a very soulful and restful visiting experience

I liked this Mission. The price is 5 dollar for an adult ticket. The 1st 3 rooms have an overhead recording to explain things in the rooms which is nice. The grounds were maintained.

The mission is a nice place and I would definitely recommend seeing it if you are in Solvang. I would not recommend making a trip to Solvang just to see the mission.

We went there for our Christmas mass and it was nice and warm mass. The church is simply beautifully and feel cozy due to its right size. Personally, I love the small chapel with Virgin Mary paintings from around the world s shrines. It was very impressive and great visit for us.

This Mission turned out to be a pleasant surprise and much larger then I thought. The grounds are very lovely and like all the CA missions this one has lots of history and wonderful old architecture. A must see!

This mission, one of 21 missions in California, is a good place to learn about the mission period in California. It is only a short hop from the main village in Solvang.

Our family of 7 attended Christmas Day Mass in this nice historic mission. Afterwards, we toured the grounds and enjoyed the lovely scenery. A nice church to attend for the holiday!

We were driving around looking at the holiday lights on Christmas Eve and happened upon this church. Nice old Mission architecture and style. We heard a chorus of people signing and drove around to see the additional buildings. There is an outdoor Stations of the Cross too.
