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.

I went because I am a California Missions geek and feel the need to see them all but this is definitely the least impressive. Visit to see the collection of art on the Missions but this one definitely needs more work put into it.

The Mission San Francisco was the last of the 21 missions to be built. There is a modest $3 entrance fee which also includes the Vallejo House (short distance away). There is a small courtyard and a small chapel. I enjoy the California history.

The last of the California Missions. Learn about the people who helped California become a state. View many artifactes found on the grounds. Observe how Mexican soldiers lived in the 1840's and 1850's.
