This mission is small, but very interesting - we learned some California history that we weren't already aware of. Right next door to Vallejo's former residence & Hotel Toscana.

We have been visiting as many CA missions as we can over the years. This is the first one that is not an active church. The museum had really nice watercolors of other missions as well.

If you've visited many of California's 23 missions, then you know that some of them are quite elaborately decorated and maintained. This one, by contrast, is just an low adobe building without as much to see as in some of the other missions. It's only...More

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.

We dried out from the wine for a day and enjoyed learning about where this town came from - the Mission was the place to start. Great history and very informative

I had a tour by "Gordie"; well versed Docent volunteer. This is a Mission great to see, because it is in better repair than some others I was told. Also, other activities nearby make it worthwhile.
