Excellent introductory video and museum set the scene. Large area to wander round in the courtyard and carefully restored church obviously in use. Lots nearby to make a four hour visit in total.

We enjoyed our quiet Thanksgiving here. Nothing is open, so it was very quiet indeed. We have visited the mission when things are open and it is delightful. We make the mission and staying at the Posada de San Juan a destination annually.

Beautiful large church with 3 aisles (most of all the missions). Look for the animal prints baked in the tiles on the floor of the church. Gorgeous grounds and gardens to explore.

So quiet, so solemn, such a hidden gem. No matter your religious or spiritual belief, if you wait for it, your soul can reveal itself to you here. The antiquity of this place and its artifacts are nothing short of reverent. My docent on duty,...More
