Set among the farm fields along the Salinas River this small mission founded in 1791 has been restored. The original mission ruins are in back as an archaeological dig. The chapel sanctuary is the smallest of all 21 mission but rich in faith. It is nestled in the heart of the wine country known as the Santa Lucia Highlands and... More

This is in fact a church, a museum, a gathering place for the community, and an active archaeological site! Take your time and wander around and read everything... Also very cool miniatures of all of the California missions!

This is a very pretty mission and very peaceful. The mission is surrounded by different vegetable fields and the Pinnacle Mountain Range. A lovely mission worth visting.

While the original mission church was destroyed by floods and neglect, there is a beautiful small church that was built in the 1950's in typical mission style. I thought the museum was well done -it continues through several rooms based on an historical timeline. There are some beautiful paintings and pieces of clothing on display in the well lit areas....

If you enjoy the Missions, please visit. This is a very poor, and under funded mission. It is also a reconstruction from 1955. It is enjoyable, but San Miguel and San Antonio, South of here are better for their historical value.

On a lonely road among fields of crops, it's a short ride off the main highway. Features the lovely mission, a small museum of historical artifacts, and a commemorative fountain.

You really have to want to drive to this Mission along the Camino Real off Hwy 101. When I visited it was closed, but I enjoyed the gorgeous flowers and mission architecture.

This is one of the 21 Missions founded by the Spanish padres in the late 1700s. This is not the largest or the most impressive, but I found that it gave us more of a sense of its history than many of the others. The chapel has been completely restored so it was easy to imagine what it would have... More
