This mission is not original. It has been rebuilt. It is very small and there are only a few pieces displayed in the gift shop. It still is very neat to see all the Missions.

Although the original mission chapel is no longer, the recontructed one is simply beautiful. the mission chapel has a simple mueseum (religious items) and a peaceful play to pray. I have seen many missions and while this one doesn't have all the original buildings as the others, it is still great to see a piece of our california history with some beautiful redwoods by the original mission building

Small mission, free admission, self guided tour that will take just a few minutes. A humble place of worship that is an important part of California history.

This is an important but smaller historical California Mission that you should visit. It is in a park with a large Catholic Church and a park with lots of places to hang out. Quaint architecture and still serves as an active church with services.

We went to the site of the old Santa Cruz Mission over which is now built a Catholic Church - old itself as built in 1889 The site is pretty The only surviving mission building is a dormitory that has been restored and functions as a museum.
